USF Architecture-Riverwalk / Gender Role Research
Imagine the pressure of putting together a plan for a two mile section of riverfront in a major city in just a matter of weeks. Now add the stress of presenting that plan to officials from that city. A USF summer class didn't just imagine doing such things--they did it! University Beat on WUSF TV shows you how a group of USF Architecture and Urban Design students created what might just be the next phase of Tampa's Riverwalk.
A simple research study on how men respond to threats to their masculinity had people around the globe talking—and in some cases, quite angrily—when the media and bloggers picked up the story. On this week's University Beat on WUSF 89.7 FM, we'll hear directly from the two USF psychology researchers behind the study. They’ll talk about their work, their reactions to the somewhat surprising worldwide response, and what they've learned from the experience.
Lee Hoffman, Tampa's Riverwalk Development Manager, talks about the importance of the area to the city's future plans.
Ashly Anderson, a USF Masters of Urban & Community Design student, says it's not easy to put together a detailed plan for an area like Tampa's Riverwalk in only four weeks. She also talks about the advantages of her experience as an interior designer.
Shannon Bassett, USF Assistant Professor of Architecture & Urban Design, talks about [re]stitch Tampa, an international design ideas competition starting in August. The competition, funded in part by a National Endowment for the Arts grant, is aimed at tying downtown Tampa to the Hillsborough Riverfront.
USF Associate Professors of Psychology Jennifer Bosson and Joseph Vandello talk to Mark Schreiner about the kind of responses they've received from the public to their research, 'Precarious Manhood.'
Jennifer Bosson and Joseph Vandello share details about what their research looked at and how it was conducted. They also talk about how the current economy is playing into some of their future work.
Mark Schreiner asks Jennifer Bosson and Joseph Vandello if the fact that they're a 'co-ed' team has an effect on their work.
