On April 24 at 4:30 pm in Rose Hills Theater, Sonali Kolhatkar, host and executive producer of “Uprising” on KPFK-FM and co-founder of the Afghan Women’s Mission, presented this year’s Pinkel Lecture in Media Studies, in which she conducted a probing analysis of the ways in which new online media are transforming local, national and international political movements. Those of you who missed the talk can hear it on an upcoming broadcast of KSPC’s Sunday “Public Affairs” program (tentatively scheduled for May 6).
The Anne Abel-Pinkel and Benjamin Pinkel Media Studies Lecture Fund was established by Sheila Pinkel, Professor of Art at Pomona College, in honor of her parents. It supports an annual lecture on a topic of import by a leading theorist or practitioner in the field. The goal of the series is to promote critical awareness and discussion of contemporary media related topics. In addition, a reception or dinner following the lecutre is inteneded to afford students, faculty and the general public the opportunity to continue a dialogue with the speaker in a more informal setting.
