Kevin “KAL” Kallaugher: “Where to Draw the Line: Cartooning in the Shadow of Charlie”

Tuesday, May 5 | 4:00 p.m.
104 ITE Building

In celebration of his ten years as artist-in-residence at the Imaging Research Center, the celebrated political cartoonist Kevin “KAL” Kallaugher presents a lecture, “Where to Draw the Line: Cartooning in the Shadow of Charlie.” A reception will follow at 5:00 p.m. in the Imaging Research Center, 108 ITE Building.

The recent brutal massacre in Paris sparked by the publication of controversial cartoons in the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo shocked the world. It also launched an emotional debate over the value and limits of free speech in free societies. International award-winning editorial cartoonist Kevin “KAL” Kallaugher has navigated through the increasingly delicate minefield of visual satire for nearly four decades and reflects upon the current uncertain state of affairs and what it might mean for cartoonists and society.

Kal has been the political cartoonist for the Economist Magazine for the last 37 years and is also currently a special contributing cartoonist for the Baltimore Sun. This year he has received two prestigious awards: the 2015 Herblock Prize for editorial cartooning, and the Grand Prix for the 2014 Cartoon of the Year in Europe. In addition to his political cartooning, Kal is also a sought after public speaker addressing audiences around the world on issues of current events, satire, cartoons and freedom of expression. Kal has presented TEDx talks in Warwick, England; Jackson Hole, Wyoming; as well as other talks at Oxford, Harvard, Yale, Duke, Stanford, Pixar Studios and Google headquarters.

The Grand Prix Press Cartoon Europe 2015 was won by KAL for the cartoon pictured, published in The Economist on the 18th of October 2014.

Kal’s Artist in Residency was supported, in part, by the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation; the Office of Institutional Advancement; the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences; the Division of Undergraduate Academic Affairs; and the Sondheim Public Affairs Scholars Program.

This event is co-sponsored by the Imaging Research Center; the Dresher Center for the Humanities; the Center for Innovation, Research, and Creativity in the Arts; the Maryland Institute for Policy Analysis and Research; the Sondheim Public Affairs Scholars Program; and the Division of Undergraduate Academic Affairs.

Both the lecture and reception are free and open to the public. Parking information is available here.
