April 19, 2013

Baird Jarman, associate professor of art history, presented "The Melodramatic Mode of Reportage: Thomas Nast as a Civil War Illustrator” at the Midwest Art History Society’s annual conference in Columbus, Ohio on March 21. During his panel presentation, Jarman discussed the work of Thomas Nast, the leading American political caricaturist of the Reconstruction Era. As Jarman explained, Thomas Nast attained fame with his highly satirical drawings, which portrayed the class between the stereotyped northern heroes and southern villains.
