Lecture on Alfred Kinsey, Junk Science, and Sexual Revolution
This month a new film will be released lionizing the life and work of famed zoologist Alfred Kinsey. Dubbed the father of the sexual revolution, Kinsey shocked America in the 1940s and 50s by his research purporting to show that the vast majority of Americans engaged in sexual behaviors traditionally regarded as deviant or unethical. Social scientists, lawyers, and educators were soon citing Kinsey's findings to justify sweeping changes in American law and culture. But in recent years the validity of Kinsey's research has been seriously questioned. Was the sexual revolution launched on the basis of a hoax? Join Dr. John West as he explores a cautionary tale of what can happen when society places blind trust in those who claim to speak in the name of science. The lecture takes place on Wednesday, Nov. 10 at 7:30 pm in Demaray Hall 150. "Junk Science in the Bedroom: Alfred Kinsey's Destructive Impact on American Law and Culture," public lecture featuring John West.


Veteran's Day Tribute
This Wednesday November 10th there will be a special tribute to our US soldiers.
