Today on this show, we have PhD student from the University of Waterloo in Waterloo Ontario, Harrison Oakes. Harrison studies the roles of threat and defense in prejudice (e.g., masculinity threat and subsequent homophobic behavior/cognition) and the interaction of power and status with anxiety in shaping cognition and emotion. He has also written two nationally-disseminated teacher’s guides for bullying awareness. Harrison is a gay male, and I had the pleasure of recording him for the show twice. The first time though, the audio was lost. But Harrison graciously agreed to do it again, and we had a great chat that was filled with information and theory and just great stories that I had to split it into two shows. So next week, you’ll get a bonus MMP with the second part of this convo, lucky you!
As always, reach me via email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to be on the show. Also if you want to leave me some feedback, do it @modernmanpod on Twitter and Instagram.
