The New Yorker

Julia Suits

Join The New Yorker’s cartoon editor, Emma Allen, and two cartoonists for the magazine, Navied Mahdavian and Julia Suits, for a conversation with the longtime cartoonist and writer Liza Donnelly about single-panel cartooning in the current moment. They’ll discuss cartooning amid political upheaval and the pandemic, cartooning in the era of the Internet and social media, the shifting demographics of cartoonists at The New Yorker, how individual experience and identity influence humor, and how we process personal and shared experiences through humor.
