On Monday, March 18, Emerson College will host the second panel discussion in its four-part series with media partner WGBH. Titled "Who's to Blame? Gun Violence in Media and Electronic Games," the panel will explore what impact, if any, media and video games have on gun violence in the United States. The panel will take place at the Semel Theater, 10 Boylston Place (a pedestrian walkway located off Boylston Street, halfway between Charles Street and Tremont Street).
Moderated by WGBH radio and television host Callie Crossley, the panel will include Lesley University Professor Emerita and author of Taking Back Childhood Nancy Carlsson-Paige; child and adolescent psychiatrist at Massachusetts General Hospital and faculty member at Harvard University T. Atilla Ceranoglu, MD; Director of the Parents Television Council (a nonprofit advocating for responsible entertainment) Dan Isett; and Executive Director of the Media Coalition (an association that defends the American public's First Amendment right to have access to the broadest possible range of opinion and entertainment) David Horowitz.
The event starts at 6:30 pm. There will be 60 minutes of the panel discussion, followed by 30 minutes of Q&A.
