Professor Vander Ven who works within the Sociology Department of OU will be featured at a special talkback on Friday April 14th for “This is How You Got Me Naked,” by Catherine Weingarten. He wrote a book called “Getting Wasted: Why College Students Drink Too Much and Party Too Hard,” which discusses the benefits and behavioral patterns of college drinking culture. There will be a discussion of how this real world research fits in with some of the big ideas about hookup culture and college party culture in Catherine’s play. Come check it out and YOU can be part of the conversation too!
