Parody Never Faileth: The Role Of Humor, Satire, And Kitsch In Mormon Culture

Mormons love a good laugh—and sometimes are willing to laugh at themselves. Join us for a lighthearted and light-minded Thursday evening plenary session wherein we will enjoy a closer look at the amusing, the humorous, and the absurd in Mormon creations. We will examine Jana Riess’s Twible project, a slide show featuring LOLcats with a Mormony twist, a look at Mormon kitsch,and comedic performances.
