Calling all Star Wars fans,
I am a researcher in fan cultures and I am currently working on a project which looks into fan responses to the news of the Disney take-over of Lucasfilm and the continuation of the ‘Star Wars’ film franchise in the 21st century. I have been a massive fan of Star Wars since I was eight years old (I am 38) and would like to map how fans feel about this turn of events. The findings of this project will be published in early 2013 and every person who takes part will see their comments in print (which will be published in the academic journal, ‘Participations’ which looks into audiences across the cultural landscape – this will be available for free online when it is published). This work will be respectful to ‘Star Wars’ fans (as I am one myself) and looks to analyse the creativity and opinions of one of the largest fan communities in the world.
I am looking for volunteers to fill out the short questionnaire to offer their opinions and thoughts about the ‘Star Wars’ franchise – whether optimistic or negative. Please feel free to curse, adore, hate, or love depending upon your position. I want to give ‘Star Wars’ fans the chance to vocalise their emotions with free-range and without fear of being censored.
So, please: complete the questionnaire and if you’d like to be interviewed via email, then this will make the project interesting and a focal point of your articulate thoughts with the best franchise in the galaxy!
All questionnaires to be completed in Word, or similar, and sent back to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many, many thanks for your help. I hope we can work together to discuss the biggest ‘Star Wars’ news this side of the new millennium.
Kindest Regards, Billy Proctor University of Sunderland Centre for Research in Media and Cultural Studies United Kingdom
