Course Description

This course will look at print cartooning in America from its beginning in the 1750s to the present, with emphasis on political cartoons, single-panel gags, and comic strips, plus sidelong glances at comic books and animation. Where do cartoons come from? Why do some "work" and others fall flat? When do they "go too far"? Do they even need to be funny? Do they have a future in the digital age? It will also explore how cartoonists develop ideas, the materials they use, and how they survive economically. The course will include many examples of great cartoons from newspapers and magazines and may feature guest appearances by local professional cartoonists.  Lecture (plus Questions)  Facilitated Discussion  Viewing Videos
