My thesis, “Can She Really ‘Play That Game, Too’?”, A narrative exploration of women’s experiences with hookup culture at Middlebury College is now available to download. I spoke about this research at the Aspen Ideas Festival in June 2016.
For my senior thesis, a non-fiction creative writing project, I decided to investigate romantic and sexual culture at Middlebury College. After interviewing almost 100 students, and surveying over 300, I wrote “Can She Really ‘Play That Game, Too?”, which documents the realities of hookup culture at Middlebury from a female perspective. It’s explicit, entertaining, and 100% true.
While this thesis describes Middlebury, readers world-wide tell me it represents romantic and sexual cultures at many campuses. I encourage anyone interested in modern love and romance to check it out. I look forward to hearing what you think, and sincerely appreciate your support!
