Checking in on Hooking Up

Location: Hynson Lounge

October 13, 2015
The author of Hooking Up will share her findings about how today’s students view sex, dating and relationships in a talk Oct. 13 at 7 p.m. in Hynson Lounge.

CHESTERTOWN, MD—“Hooking up” is a widely misunderstood term, so sociologist Kathleen Bogle went straight to the source – college students – in researching her book Hooking Up: Sex, Dating, and Relationships on Campus. On October 13 at 7:00 p.m., she will visit Washington College to talk about her findings. The event will take place in Hynson Lounge, Hodson Hall, on the College campus, 300 Washington Avenue and is free and open to the public.  The talk is sponsored by the departments of Psychology and Sociology and the offices of Student Affairs and Wellness and Prevention Education.

A reviewer for Publisher’s Weekly praised Bogle’s book as an “evenhanded, sympathetic book on a topic that has received far too much sensational and shoddy coverage,” and “an important addition to the contemporary literature on youth and sexuality.” The book aims to inform college administrators and parents about what Bogle calls “this new sexual revolution.” The author, who teaches sociology and criminal justice at LaSalle University, also wanted to help students put their own experiences in a larger context and talk about issues they may find taboo or confusing.
