Satirical Caricaturist Steve Brodner To Speak In McCourtney Institute’s Democratic Dissent Series

Satirical caricaturist and illustrator Steve Brodner will speak at the Katz Law Building on Thursday, February 22. Brodner is the next speaker in the McCourtney Institute for Democracy’s series on democratic dissent. The talk will be held at 4 p.m. in Katz’s Sutcliffe Auditorium.

Brodner began working as an editorial cartoonist at The Hudson Dispatch in the 1970s. His illustrations and political cartoons have been featured in The New Yorker, the Los Angeles Times, Rolling Stone, TIME, and The Washington Post. He’s written or illustrated several books, created an animated film about Davy Crockett, and produced a documentary short.

In his talk, titled “Too Close for Comfort,” Brodner will show his work, describe his creative process, and discuss the role of political cartoons in a democracy.
