    Name: The Humor of The New Yorker Magazine
    Date: March 29, 2020
    Time: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    Editor Harold Ross sought a new kind of comic art when he founded The New Yorker in 1925 as a "reflection in word and picture of metropolitan life...with gaiety, wit, and satire," and Barbara Shermund helped invent it. Join Judith Yaross Lee, Ohio University Distinguished Professor Emerita of Communication Studies, who recovered Shermund's work for modern audiences in writing "Defining The New Yorker Humor". Learn how the covers, spot drawings, and cartoons by Shermund and her contemporaries brought Ross's editorial vision to life.
