Exploration of Science Fiction Fandom
Are you a science fiction fan? Would you like to talk about your experience of science fiction fandom? My name is Nick and I am a PhD student at the University of Buckingham. I am looking to interview participants about their experience of science fiction fandom. I’m particularly interested in your experience of fan activities, the benefits and disadvantages of fandom and your experience of other fans and fan groups.
Interviews will take place over Skype and are expected to take 45-60 minutes. For more information, and to register your interest, please email the researcher, Nick Goddard, firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to participate, you must:
- Have self-identified as a science fiction fan for at least two years
- Be 21 years old or older
Thank you, your participation is appreciated.
