Media critic, lecturer advocate visiting KU

March 25, 2013

 KUTZTOWN, Pa. - Jennifer Pozner, who has appeared on Comedy Central, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News Network, Oxygen, Free Speech TV, Pacifica Radio and numerous documentary projects, will bring her latest multimedia presentation to KU on Thursday, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., in the McFarland Student Union Alumni Auditorium (183).

Pozner's presentation, entitled "Project Brainwash: Why Reality TV is Bad," will reveal how reality television,  the newest addiction of men, women, and teenagers everywhere, has changed the way we view women, men, people of color, the economy, love and sex. Her lecture will provide a fierce, funny, and in-depth look at how reality TV shapes our beliefs, our behavior and our culture.

A media critic, author, lecturer and founder and executive director of Women In Media & News (WIMN), a women's media analysis, education and advocacy organization, Pozner is invested in exposing how America's guilty pleasure has erased women's rights, civil rights, and gay and lesbian rights. Through humor, video clips and research, she will give you the tools to not only understand stereotypes, but also to challenge them.

This event is sponsored by the Association of Campus Events, the Women's Center and Women's and Gender Studies.
