Hookup culture on campus

On February 8th, Lisa Wade will be discussing her book, “AMERICAN HOOKUP: The New Culture of Sex on Campus,” which explores the culture of sex found on many American college campuses today.

In AMERICAN HOOKUP, Lisa Wade argues that today’s hookup culture equates college with freedom, fun, and casual sex. However, there are good, bad, and even ugly sides to this type of campus life. By including students’ own perspectives and experiences through their college years and beyond, Wade presents a personal and compelling portrait of hookup culture, exploring how it affects a diverse range of students and what it says about the changing face of dating and sex in Tinder-era America.

Please join us on Wednesday, February 8th, from 1:30-2:45 pm, in room 615HW, as Lisa gives an engaging presentation on modern-day hookup culture, and how it affects students on campuses all across the country.

Lisa Wade is an associate professor of sociology at Occidental College. 

“Hookup Culture on Campus” is co-sponsored by The Hunter College Women and Gender Studies Department, Sociology Department, and ACERT.
