The schedule of speakers for Martin Luther King Jr. Week at Bucknell University will culminate with an appearance by noted media critic Jennifer L. Pozner, who will present a lunchtime workshop and conversation on Friday, Jan. 22 at noon in the Walls Lounge inside the Elaine Langone Center.

This event is open to the public, however an RSVP is required.

Pozner's workshop is titled "How Media Instigate Gun Violence and Rape Culture ... A Media Literacy Discussion." In this provocative presentation, Pozner — who founded Women in Media & News, an advocacy organization, in 2001 — will analyze how representations of gendered violence in news media, pop culture and advertising make all Americans less safe.

Martin Luther King Jr. Week at Bucknell is a week's worth of programming presented by the President's Diversity Council. The theme of this miniseries is The Violence of Hate, and it is intended to engage our community in a conversation about Dr. King's legacy and philosophies, violence, and ways to address this seemingly intractable problem.
