Kent Worcester on Ten Great English Cartoonists You’ve Never Heard Of.
Two years ago Kent Worcester gave a talk on ten great – or at least very good – obscure leftist cartoonists. He returns to the Symposium to present an illustrated lecture on ten witty and engaging English newspaper and magazine cartoonists whose work has been largely or entirely overlooked on this side of the pond. Kent Worcester is the editor or coeditor of six books on comics and cartoons, including The Comics Studies Reader (2008), The Superhero Reader‘(2013), and, most recently, Silent Agitators: Cartoon Art from the Pages of New Politics (2016). He is a professor of Political Science at Marymount Manhattan College.
The 185th meeting of the NY Comics & Picture-story Symposium will be held on Tuesday, April 18, 2017 at 7pm at Parsons School of Design, 2 West 13th Street, in the Bark Room (off the lobby). Free and open to the public.
In our dynamic world, art reflects conditional reality, and design contributes to further development of global societies. At Parsons School of Design, rigorous practice and critical scholarship prepares students to become leading agents of commentary and change.
