Book Launch: An Education in Sexuality and Sociality: Heteronormativity on Campus

Join us as we celebrate the launch of An Education in Sexuality and Sociality: Heteronormativity on Campus, the latest book by Frank G. Karioris, visiting lecturer in the Dietrich School's Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies Program. While hook-up culture on university campuses exists, it is only part of the story. It is important to add to this and investigate the way universities broker and seek out specific forms of sexuality, sex, and connection amongst students. This book sheds light on how universities as institutions endorse certain forms of sociality, sexuality, and coupling, while excluding others. Building on extensive ethnographic fieldwork, this book furthers the discussion on the impact these institutional measures have on students, and how students work through and around them – while simultaneously establishing relations outside of and beyond hooking-up.

Thursday, January 31 at 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
