Handwerker Gallery's Tuesday Salon: Hooking Up:  What is It Good For?


Contributed by Erika Fowler-Decatur

In honor of the upcoming Valentine's Day, let's talk about hooking up, aka NSA sex, friends-with-benefits, or casual sex. Is it good for you? Is it good for the people you hook up with? What, in fact, is it good for, and does everyone have equal opportunities to hook up?

Join us in the Handwerker Gallery at 4.00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 1, for “Hooking Up:  What is It Good For?”  Rebecca Plante, associate professor of sociology, will lead the discussion.

The Tuesday Salon is a Handwerker Gallery program aimed at providing students, faculty, staff, and members of the community a forum outside of the classroom for intellectual discussion and debate. Topics are selected by our guest discussant, who provides a 10-minute introduction and moderates the ensuing conversation.
