For 31 years, the Creative Mind Humanities Lecture Series has brought scholars to speak about a variety of topics. This year, lectures are featuring political cartoonists and their significance in history.
Dr. David Rausch Jr., the Teel Bivins professor of political science at West Texas A&M University, spoke on the significance of political cartoons in history on Jan. 30. Two more speakers are scheduled in the following weeks.
The connection between caricatures and oil paintings, like the painting “The Nightmare” by Henry Fuseli and the satirical cartoon, “The Covent Garden Nightmare” by Thomas Rowlandson, was discussed by Dr. Bradford Mudge at Amarillo College.
