A couple of weeks ago, we had a call for participants from a researcher conducting a study out of Bellevue College, and we just got word that the survey deadline has been extended, so we’re passing that along! As a refresh: the study is about sociolinguistics in online fandom, and really digs into how individuals personally define various fannish terms. There’s a particular focus on shipping and antis, and a portion of the survey is optional and uses trigger warnings for potentially upsetting content around antis and anti discourse.
The number of survey questions vary depending on your answers. People have finished in around 20-30mins, and some have really dug into the optional, long-form questions and have taken an hour! We figure around 30-45mins is a good estimate for length.
The survey was set to close on Jun 25th, but has been extended to September 16th. Go go go!
