Understanding Hookup Culture: Does College Dating Still Exist?
In this Fall Film Series film, Stanford University's Paula England, a leading researcher in the sociology of gender, explores whether the hookup culture is changing basic courtship assumptions.
"Understanding Hookup Culture: Does College Dating Exist?" will be screened on Wednesday, September 26 from 7 – 8 p.m. in the East Academic Building Auditorium. Stanford University's Paula England, a leading researcher in the sociology of gender, explores the claim that hookup culture is killing off dating and courtship, altering some of our most basic assumptions about heterosexual sex and gender. Produced by the Media Education Foundation.
Emily North, Director of Student Activities at Landmark College, will lead a half-hour discussion after the film, which poses the question: Does the phenomenon of hooking up represent some kind of fundamental change, or are we simply seeing age-old gender patterns dressed up in new social forms?
This event is part of the Landmark College Fall 2012 Film Series. It is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact: Kathy Burris 802.387.1628 or Emily North 802.387.6820.
