Depictions of Women in Media Topic for Presentation at FRCC Campus in Longmont

Catlyn Keenan, philosophy and women’s studies professor at Front Range Community College, will discuss the depictions of women in various forms of media in a presentation March 18 at Front Range Community College.

The presentation will begin at 1 p.m. in the Community Room of the Classroom Building at the Boulder County Campus, 2121 Miller Drive, Longmont.

Keenan says the depiction of women in film, advertising, television, music videos, and video games has become a controversial topic with some factions arguing that the majority of images are exploitative, and the other side arguing that displays emphasizing sexuality are not inherently problematic because exploitation is determined largely by context. She will explore the nuances of depictions of women in the media, raising questions for the audience to consider. Numerous examples will be shown, making this event a dynamic presentation of eye candy.

Admission is free, with seating priority given to FRCC students.

Keenan also will give this presentation at the University of Colorado-Boulder at 4:30 p.m. March 11 in the University Memorial Center.
