Religion, Sex, and You

The relationship between sex and religion is one that has been particularly contentious. Sex Week seeks to explore this relationship through a panel on religion and sex. We hope to discuss different religion's views on subjects such as sex and marriage, sexual education, and contraception (among many other topics). We would like to have representation from a number of different religions throughout the Charlotte area and hope to foster respectful conversation about these topics between them. The moderator for this panel will be Dr. Kent Brintnall, affiliate faculty member of the Women’s and Gender Studies program. His research largely focuses on the relationship between religion and sexuality. Current confirmed panelists include Bishop Tonyia M. Rawls (Sacred Souls Community Church), Dr. Barbara Thiede (Religious Studies Department, Jewish Studies), Imam John Ederer (Muslim Community Center of Charlotte), and Rebekah Visko (Unitarian Universalist Church of Charlotte).

Student Union Movie Theater

It Happened Here Screening

It Happened Here is a documentary film that follows five female college students as they recount their sexual assault experiences and take action against their respective schools. As the film reveals each survivor’s journey, we see the tragic impact sexual assault can have on individuals, family members, school authorities, and universities. It Happened Here gives faces to the stories that have been making headlines for years, and encourages viewers to be more than a bystander and create change on their college campuses. At the end of the movie, there will be a panel discussion reflecting on the movie.
