Kane to present at Florida International University's Honors Lecture

KaneMJ-2005.jpgDr. Mary Jo Kane, Director of the Tucker Center and professor of sport sociology, was recently invited to present at Florida International University's Honors College Excellence Lecture.

Kane's lecture is titled, "Media Representations of Female Athletes: The Good, the Bad & the Sexy," a discussion of why sportswomen are routinely portrayed in the media by their femininity and sexuality rather than their on-court talents and the negative consequences from this representation.

The lecture will be given on Thursday, March 1, at the Modesto A. Maidique Campus in the School of International and Public Affairs building (SIPA).
