FYS 163 Power and Political Cartoons

What makes a political cartoon powerful? Through oral and written analysis of cartoons, we will explore the political and cultural power of this important visual medium. As you study political cartoons and craft your own, we will discuss the significance of the creative process, point of view, cultural sensitivity and offensiveness, and censorship. Researching a political cartoon's cultural specificity will help us interpret its message and evaluate its creativity and effectiveness.
