Abstract

My research question is what social and cultural influences have the greatest impact on undergraduates perceptions of sexual behavior.

I have been conducting in-depth interviews as my method of research. I have conducted about 28 interviews and am in the process of transcribing and analyzing them right now. I am analyzing what patterns emerge based on language to see what is common when it comes to Gonzaga students and concepts of virginity.

The types of questions I have asked have been open ended questions about the individual’s background, including religion, their media consumption, their familial values, political affiliation and thoughts about hook-up culture.My transcriptions will be complete within a few weeks and I have been coding the language as I've been transcribing. I look forward to sharing all my findings at the conference.
