When: Wed. Feb. 11, 2015 at 7pm

Where: University at Albany Campus Center Ballroom

Free and Open to the Public

Donna Freitas, Ph.D., will discuss the findings of her research about students’ attitudes regarding hookup culture, sex, romance, and dating on college campuses today, and how a pervasive interest in spirituality fits into this mix. She will talk about the powerful–though often private–yearnings among men and women to find love during college despite the dominance of hookup culture, and the particular ways the religious/spiritual tradition can respond to this yearning, as well as the desire for something other than hooking up during the college experience.

Dr. Donna Freitas has written many books, both nonfiction and fiction. She is the author of Sex and the Soul: Juggling Sexuality, Spirituality, Romance and Religion on America’s College Campuses, published by Oxford University Press in 2008. Her follow up title, The End of Sex, came out from Basic Books this past April. Freitas has written for national newspapers and magazines, including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, and Newsweek, and she has appeared on NPR, The Today Show, and other news media outlets discussing her work for Sex and the Soul as well as other research topics. Freitas has been a professor at Boston University in the Department of Religion and also at Hofstra University in their Honors College. She is currently a non-resident Research Associate at the Center for the Study of Religion and Society at the University of Notre Dame. She lives in Brooklyn.

Dr. Freitas will sign copies of her book, Sex and the Soul: Juggling Sexuality, Spirituality, Romance and Religion on America’s College Campuses, following her talk.
