Featured this week: Dr. Janet Boseovski – Dr. Susan Andreatta – Lynne Agee
Dr. Janet Boseovski (Psychology) has won a grant from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development for $139,500 for her proposal “Profiles of Personality Attribution in Early Childhood.” The project is aimed at characterizing the nature of young children’s judgments about the causes of behavior, with the goal of identifying potentially maladaptive profiles of social information processing and their cognitive correlates.
Dr. Susan Andreatta (Anthropology) discussed how small-scale fishermen can develop niche markets at the Local Catch: Quality, Marketing and Consumption Symposium Sept. 16 in Pittsburg. The event was co-sponsored by North Carolina Sea Grant and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Sea Grant College Program. Andreatta pioneered the community supported fishery (CSF) concept that has caught on nationally.
