Cartoonist to Speak on "Global Cartooning in the Days of ISIS"
Please join us for "Global Cartooning in the Days of ISIS," a lecture
in Global Studies sponsored by the School of Liberal Arts, the
Department of Communications and the Department of Art. The
event will take place on Tuesday, April 21, at 7:00 p.m. in Student
Center Room 3101.
The speaker is Liza Donnelly, cartoonist at the New Yorker and
Forbes, TED talk speaker, Cultural Envoy for the U.S. State
Department and the author of several books and cartoon anthologies
focused on gender issues. Please view her complete biography and
her recent editorial in the New York Times.
The Global Studies Program's "From the Field" lecture series was launched this year and chooses every semester a topic of
high visibility in the current news. Last fall's lecture was on the Ebola crisis. Ms. Donnelly will discuss her involvement with the
international group Cartooning for Peace and decode for us some of her colleagues' cartoons from around the world that
responded to the events.
