PowerTalk with Liza Donnelly

Wednesday, November 7, 2018
James Room, 4th Floor of Barnard Hall

Join us for a conversation with Distinguished Fellow Liza Donnelly, a visual journalist, cartoonist, and writer with The New Yorker and The New York Times. She is also a resident cartoonist at CBS News and a contributor to CNN.

Donnelly is a Cultural Envoy for the U.S.State Department, traveling around the world speaking about freedom of speech, cartoons and women’s rights; and she is also a charter member of Cartooning for Peace, an international organization to promote dialogue and understanding through editorial cartoons.

She has an honorary PhD for her work in women’s rights and peace from the University of Connecticut and her TEDtalk on gender was translated into 38 languages and viewed online over a million times.

Through her work as a cartoonist and writer, she has been able to leverage humor to help rewrite the rules around gender and power in our society. This conversation will explore what it is like to be a woman cartoonist and how we can use humor for change.

Our PowerTalk series features today’s leaders discussing provocative topics of the moment. Each talk is followed by an audience Q&A.

This conversation will be moderated by Jenna Freedman, Associate Director of Communications and Zine Librarian, and is co-sponsored by Barnard Library and Academic Information Services, and co-sponsored by the Columbia Artist Society.
