HPU To Host Fourth Event In Film And Lecture Series, Featuring Writer And Director Denice Ann Evans

02.3.2010

HIGH POINT, N.C., Feb. 3, 2010 ? High Point University will host writer and director Denice Ann Evans as part of HPU?s year-long “Turn Down the Lights/Turn Up the Volume: Women?s Documentary Film and Lecture Series.” The event ? the fourth in the series ? will focus on “Dating, Mating and Hooking Up.” The event will be held at 7 p.m. on Feb. 11 in the Extraordinaire Cinema in the University Center.

Evans will screen and discuss her award-winning documentary, “Spitting Game: The College Hook-Up Culture,” a frank examination of the socially accepted culture of sexual promiscuity and its relationship to alcohol and drugs that exists on today’s college campuses. “Spitting Game” describes hooking up as a “drunken, no-strings attached sexual encounter” ? behavior that completely eclipses traditional dating and romance.

The series, which began in the fall of 2009, is dedicated to the experiences of women as their lives intersect in all aspects of society. The unique collection of events is coordinated by Dr. Judy Isaksen, associate professor of communication, and Dr. Joanne Sandberg, assistant professor of sociology. Each session contains information on a number of issues, including advertising, health and beauty issues, lifestyle choices, relationships and more.
