“Big Questions” Web series releases third episode
The Department of Religious and Theological Studies has released the third episode of “Big Questions,” a Web series designed to provide a forum for open discussion about issues that matter to the campus and the world.
The episode features department chairman Dr. Tony LoPresti interviewing author and researcher Donna Freitas, who visited Salve Regina Sept. 18 to discuss her recent study on college “hookup culture.”
Freitas, who taught religion at Boston University and Hofstra University, has written many books, both nonfiction and fiction, including “Sex and the Soul: Juggling Sexuality, Spirituality, Romance and Religion on America’s College Campuses.” She is currently a non-resident research associate at the University of Notre Dame’s Center for the Study of Religion and Society.
Future episodes of “Big Questions” will feature a rotation of Salve Regina faculty hosts, while the guest list will include students, community leaders and visiting lecturers.
