Roundtable focusing on influence of political cartoons
The role that editorial cartooning holds in the current political climate will be the subject of an upcoming roundtable discussion sponsored by the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy.
“Pictures and Words: Graphic Social Protest in America” will be held at 11:45 a.m. Tuesday, April 5 in the Miley Hall executive dining room.
In today’s media, we are served an endless stream of political cartoons, offering everything from light satire to brutal lambaste. Moderated by Susannah Strong, assistant professor in the Department of Art and Art History, the roundtable will explore what kind of influence, if any, this is having.
Roundtable discussions are open to Salve Regina students, faculty and staff. The Pell Center provides a free lunch. As space is limited, those interested in attending should RSVP to (401) 341-2927 or email@example.com.
