|WHO:||Mark Fiore, winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning|
Mark Fiore will discuss the role of satire and the serious implications it has for politics today.
Fiore was the first to receive the Pulitzer Prize for political cartoons that appear entirely online. According to the Pulitzer jury, Fiore’s “…biting wit, extensive research, and ability to distill complex issues set a high standard for an emerging form of commentary.”
He has been recognized by a number of other awards, including 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.
