Charlie Hebdo & January 7: A Mini-symposium & Conversation
Charlie Hebdo & January 7: A Mini-Symposium & Conversation

Please join us on Thursday, February 19, 4-6 pm in the Schulz Lecture Hall (Rm. 220) , for a short symposium on the events of January 7, 2015, when the Parisian satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo was attacked by armed assailants, leaving a dozen individuals dead including five cartoonists. Bringing together scholars working in French comics, popular culture and identity, global media and the middle east, and the history of radical satire in comics and alternative publications, this symposium seeks to provide both context and preliminary thoughts towards answering some of the big questions raised by the event. This event is FREE and open to the public. Visit Charlie Hebdo & January 7
