Journalism History set
to publish Makemson's work


School of Communications faculty member Harlen Makemson's article "A 'Dude and Pharisee': Cartoon Attacks on Harper's Weekly Editor George William Curtis and the Mugwumps in the Campaign of 1884" has been accepted for publication in the Winter 2004 issue of Journalism History.

The article analyzes how cartoonists in the satirical magazine The Judge attempted to discredit the revolt of independent Republicans, or Mugwumps, by attacking their masculinity, playing upon cultural uncertainty over the meaning of manhood during the Gilded Age and equating a lack of political loyalty with a lack of male characteristics.
