A special presentation sponsored jointly by Graduate Liberal Studies and MPS Journalism.

Please RSVP to mpsjournalism@georgetown.edu or lsp@georgetown.edu.

27 Oct 1-1am

Mark Fiore won the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning this April, marking the first time the coveted award has been given for political cartoons that appear entirely online. With this new form of political cartoon, he is a pioneer in the contemporary display of political satire in the spirit of Mark Twain. Fiore will discuss the role of satire and the serious implications it has for today's politics.

According to the Pulitzer jury, Mark Fiore's "�biting wit, extensive research, and ability to distill complex issues set a high standard for an emerging form of commentary." Recognition of his significant leadership in this field has come from other awards as well: the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award in the category of cartoons, an Online Journalism Award from the Online News Association and the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, and two awards from the National Cartoonists Society for his work in new media.

This event is part of the In the Spirit of Mark Twain lecture series.
