The Art of Controversy or Why One Caricature May Be Worth 10,000 Words

Victor Navasky '54, best known for his illustrious career in journalism as editor and publisher of The Nation, shared his thoughts about political caricatures with the campus community during the annual Thomas B. McCabe Lecture. In his talk, Navasky considered the significant influence that caricatures can have on the political arena and explored why the medium may be more incendiary than other forms of journalistic expression. Navasky currently serves as the George Delacorte Professor of Magazine Journalism at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism and recently published Mission Accomplished! Or How We Won the War in Iraq.
