The Simpsons, Satire, And American Culture

Hour 2:           Can we learn about our culture and society from watching television shows like The Simpsons? We’ll examine the “culture wars” through the lens of the long-running and very popular animated series this hour with Matthew A. Henry, professor of English and Cultural Studies at Richland College and author of “The Simpsons, Satire, and American Culture” (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012).

    Thank you for having him on your show! I took his class years ago at Richland and absolutely loved it – it was both challenging and interesting. I really enjoyed listening and am looking forward to reading his book!
