Abstract

Satire and its effectiveness are long established and broad–based. Speaking truth to power is more easily done in the context of humor. As we are moving towards an environment where alternative facts are recognized, expressing counter–narratives becomes more significant. Creative writing major Megan Eckles and animation major Dominique Giniusz pursue this approach. This is part of the Visual Literacy Initiative of CLAS and LUCAD students collaborating and letting our students’ voices be heard.
