Fort Lewis College 1000 Rim Drive Durango, CO 81301 admission@fortlewis.edu 877-352-2656 http://www.fortlewis.edu *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* Following a horrific terror attack at the French weekly satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in early 2015, the art of political cartooning entered into common discussion at a level not previously seen. Often dismissed as trite, silly or crude, political cartoons are actually an extremely powerful form of protest art, which more than once have shaped the flow of history. We’ll have a look at the the evolution of editorial cartooning in the western world in this episode of Fortifact: A Razor Sharp Pen: The History of Political Cartooning. Political cartoons as a genre of art can be separated into some component parts: a caricature or surreal juxtaposition, a comment on a topical issue or person, and a witty concept that ties the previous two things together. Throw in some iconic symbols and you have a powerful statement. Caricature, or the art of depicting a person in an exaggerated manner, has ancient roots. Some of the earliest examples we have date from the Roman city of Pompeii in 79 BCE. This ancient caricature of a politician could have been drawn yesterday. The Italian polymath Leonardo DaVinci delighted in the grotesque, and it was from the Italian, caricare, (kari Kari) which means “exaggeration,” that we derive the word. For most of its early life, caricature as an art form was intended for private audiences, often commissioned by the rich for their own amusement. The tradition of satirically commenting on topical issues got started in the early 18th century with the English polymath William Hogarth. Mainly a painter by trade, Hogarth popularized the idea of using illustration to moralize against the sins of the day. By the late 1700’s editorial cartoons were becoming increasingly understood as a new and influential political tool. In fact, American Founding Father Benjamin Franklin was an early adopter, creating a cartoon extolling colonial unity that is still used today. Following the French Revolution in 1789, editorial cartooning really began to take off, again in England, with its great exponents James Gillray and Thomas Rowlandson. In the 1843, a satirical British magazine called Punch debuted. The publication was scathing in its mockery of the rich and powerful, and brought the term “cartoon” into it’s modern usage as a non-realistic drawing. By the end of the 19th century, newspapers in many countries featured political cartoons. Throughout the 20th century, editorial cartooning continued evolving into simpler forms that relied more on witty, biting punchlines than realistically drawn images. Interestingly, famed children’s book author Dr. Suess freelanced as a political cartoonist during WWII. With the invention of the internet at the end of the 20th century, journalism changed radically, as much of the profit margin collapsed under the preferences of a digital generation whose expectation for online content is that it is free. In 1995, there were over 200 professional staff cartoonists earning a living in american newspapers. In 2015, there are about 50. And yet, those few are reaching, and affecting, larger audiences than ever, alining with an increasing cohort of freelance artists that are not tied to a specific organization. What the future holds for political cartooning is as yet uncertain, but this powerful art form is unlikely to disappear anytime soon.

There is a place for cosy reassurance, but I don't think that political comedy is it. Thanks to the people who wrote in to point out that Armando Ianucci also created a show called 'Veep' set in the world of American national politics. I had never seen it, and have now given it a look. It was made by a largely British team - the writers, producer, director and others were British. It is sort of the exception that proves the rule - the only American political programme with a healthy cynicism about national politics, is a copy of a British series, and made by British people.

Named one of TIME’s “100 most influential people in the world” in 2013, Bassem Youssef is an Egyptian satirist, columnist, and talk show host. A cardiac surgeon by training, Youssef turned to comedy after he was inspired by the Egyptian revolution. He uploaded the first episode of his homemade newscast, “The B+ Show,” to YouTube in May 2011. After it garnered more than 5 million views in three months, Youssef was named the host of “Al-Bernameg,” a satirical newscast modeled after Jon Stewart’s “The Daily Show.” Youssef’s bold, intelligent, and humorous critiques of Egyptian politics quickly became a hit with audiences in the country and garnered more than 40 million viewers. Due to its sharp criticism of Egyptian leaders, Al-Bernameg faced political pressure from successive governments until it was finally taken off the air in the summer of 2014. Recently, Youssef launched “The Democracy Handbook,” a Fusion TV digital series that satirizes American politics through a Middle Eastern perspective. Youssef is currently a Visiting Scholar at CDDRL's Program on Arab Reform and Democracy. He served as a resident fellow at the Institute of Politics at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government in 2015.

http://marxismfestival.org.uk http://socialistworker.co.uk/art/40917/Marxism+2015+reflects+new+mood+for+resistance Over 2,700 people gathered in central London for the Marxism 2015 festival last weekend. They included striking workers, students, campaigners and socialists from across the globe. Up to 900 people attended the opening rally. Amy Leather from the central committee of the Socialist Workers Party (SWP) said, “The theme of Marxism is ideas for revolution—we need to make those ideas a reality.” Events in Greece dominated the event (see below). Several meetings discussed struggle and austerity in Britain. At a meeting on class Joseph Choonara argued that people feel more precarious than they are and that the working class can transform society. A debate on why there are so few strikes in Britain looked at whether there has been a structural change in the working class. Some argued that focusing only on structural changes could miss underlying shifts in workers’ mood to fight. Bfawu union president Ian Hodson spoke in one session, along with striking Glasgow homelessness caseworkers and two sacked porters from Sotheby’s. There was a live link-up with a US McDonald’s worker. Members of Glasgow socialist choir—Unite, Fight, Sing— finished the meeting with a song from the US fast food strikers’ picket lines. The Glasgow strikers raised around £1,000 for their strike fund over the weekend. Racism Fighting racism was a big theme. Hassan Mahamdallie spoke on the frightening rise in state Islamophobia. Veteran anti-racist Darcus Howe launched his memoirs at the event. Diane Abbott MP discussed how to take on racism with Sabby Dhalu and Weyman Bennett from Unite Against Fascism. It was standing room only in a meeting on how socialists should vote in the European Union referendum. Some argued for a Yes vote because racists and Ukip are likely to dominate the No campaign. Others said socialists shouldn’t abandon the No side to the racists—and said some on the Yes side would also use racism. A meeting on why Labour lost saw a discussion on how socialists should respond to Jeremy Corbyn’s candidacy for Labour leader. Other meetings debated the nature of Zionism, women’s oppression and the Green Party. Many service users discussed their experiences at a meeting on Marxism and mental health. Debated Several meetings debated how Marxist theory applies today. Others linked theory with struggles—such as how the school system fails children. Socialists and activists spoke from Turkey, Bahrain, Ireland, France, Spain, Germany, Egypt, Syria and Ukraine. A meeting on revolution and counter-revolution in Egypt grappled with the crushing of the hopes of 2011. People called for protests when Egyptian dictator El-Sisi visits Britain. There were a number of meetings on Palestine, including one on the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign. Some 70 students met for a picnic on Friday afternoon. Many were at Marxism for the first time, including Iona from Brighton University. She told Socialist Worker, “I came because I want to get more politically active. There’s no other event like this—I love it.” Greece—the big debate Socialists from Greece spoke about the struggle there and debated the best way to take it forward. Stathis Kouvelakis from the central committee of Syriza, the left party in government in Greece, debated Alex Callinicos on Saturday. This followed Syriza passing an austerity deal through the Greek parliament. Stathis argued that there had been a “failure of political strategy” in Greece. Alex stressed that this was not the end of the battle and said the mass mobilisation of workers pointed to the way forward. Panos Garganas, editor of the Workers’ Solidarity newspaper in Greece, spoke from the floor. He said, “The game is not over. But we have discovered the referee is against us.” He said Syriza had made the mistake of thinking it could make the bosses see reason. “We’ve used the ballot box,” he said. “Now we have to use workers’ power in the workplace.” http://marxismfestival.org.uk http://socialistworker.co.uk/art/40917/Marxism+2015+reflects+new+mood+for+resistance

Heres a virtual movie of the very gifted German Romantic poet Heinrich Heine (13 December 1797 17 February 1856). reading his sweet lovely,but sad little poem "When Two Who Love" This beautiful poem is read superbly in English by Luce Girlman. Christian Johann Heinrich Heine (13 December 1797 17 February 1856) was a journalist, essayist, literary critic, and one of the most significant German romantic poets. He is remembered chiefly for selections of his lyric poetry, many of which were set to music in the form of lieder (art songs) by German composers most notably by Robert Schumann. Heinrich Heine was born in Düsseldorf. His father was a tradesman, who during the French occupation found new prospects opening up for Jews. When his father's business failed, Heine was sent to Hamburg, where his rich banker uncle Salomon tried to encourage him into a commercial career, without success. Heine studied at the universities of Bonn, Berlin and Göttingen, but was more interested in literature than law, although he eventually took a degree in 1825. Heine's teacher in Berlin was G.W.F. Hegel; they both admired Napoleon. In order to make possible a civil service career, closed to Jews at that time, Heine converted to Protestantism. He also changed his first name from Harry to the more Germanic Heinrich. However, he never practised or held a position in government service. Heine's poetry ranged from romantic lyrics about frustrated or bittersweet love to sharp political satire, but he didn't have high hopes that his words would change anything: "You cant' catch rats with syllogisms, / They nimbly jump your finest sophism." (from 'The Migratory Rats') The last king of Romanticism had a love-hate relationship with German Romanticism but he produced some of its purest examples in poetry.

Behind the scenes of one of the US most influential satire programs! Together with Jon Stewart from The Daily Show, Stephen Colbert gathered 215,000 Americans to the demonstration "To Restore Sanity and/or Fear" in Washington in 2010. Stephen Colbert has been kicking over the traces so poignantly and well aimed that he has been called in to Congress for a hearing. He showed up, not as the father of three and the writer from South Carolina, but as the talk show host Stephen Colbert, his alter ego. The Colbert Report is a talk show that started as a spin-off from The Daily Show, and since the beginning has been making people laugh with fresh political satire. Because no one is as sharp or funny as the always eloquent Stephen Colbert. Co-Executive Producer Meredith Bennett and Head Writer Opus Moreschi joined us at Nordic Media Festival. They have, together with Stephen Colbert, created one of the most popular and longest-running talk shows on American TV. Here you get a glimpse into how they create the satire which has become a political power factor in American society, what the DNA of the show is, and why the basic strategy of The Colbert Report is always: "Make sure the money goes into the funny". Contributing: Opus Moreschi and Meredith Bennett (The Colbert Report), Anders Giæver (VG).

at The Lyric Theatre Jan 25, 2016 6:00 pm Proudly Sponsored by WQCS /88.9FM – NPR for the Treasure Coast Partial proceeds to benefit Volunteers in Medicine. From the only group that attempts to be funnier than Congress, comes a timely, wickedly funny new show! This time around, it s not just politics: Brian Williams, Bill Cosby, Tom Brady, and the TSA are all tastefully skewered as well! What started as a group of Senate staffers poking fun at the absurdity of Washington D.C. politics is now one of the hottest political comedy shows in the country. Back again after popular demand, Capitol Steps has a punchline for all the latest headlines, leaving no presidential candidate or international leader safe from ridicule. Appearing on national television and public radio, Capitol Steps has become a national sensation, beloved for its witty political commentary and absurd skits. Back in 1981, a collection of Senate staff members came together to present a collection of song parodies for an upcoming Christmas party. An instant hit with fellow staff members and other audience members, the staffers decided to take their show on tour. Over three decades later, Capitol Steps has swept the country with their sharp political commentary. The Capitol Steps performers are no longer Senate staffers, but the legacy lives on in the current troupe of world-class comedians, singers, and performers. Aside from their theatrical performances on the stage, Capitol Steps has created a radio show, “Politics Takes a Holiday,” which is performed on NPR four times a year. With over 18 Congressional offices and 62 years of House and Senate experience between them, the Capitol Steps troupe has an intimate knowledge of Washington politics. Drawing on their experience, the group has released 30 albums featuring song parodies, including the timely Take the Money and Run- For President. Drawing on the abundance of material that American politics provides, Capitol Steps highlights the absurdity of contemporary politics through comedy.
