I made this Doctor thing...

Alright, you lot: my thesis research is go. Yes it is about Who. Yes it does have a survey. Yes I would like you to go fill it. And friend the journal for followup while you're at it, I guess, if you're into that kind of thing.

The journal is lifeonravolox. The first entry that explains everything is here.

More importantly - I would like to ask you very very nicely to spread the word of this. Just, randomly link it in your LJ or whatnot. Part of the research is supposed to be finding out how people get to the survey - mapping pathways of information, as it were. So if you can be really very nice and link it in your El Jays or post about to Who-related communities and all that, I'll um, do something nice for you. Like a picspam. Or porn. Or just the warm and fuzzy knowledge that you've contributed to the worthy cause of fandom research.

What university do you attend, and are they accepting applications?

Lovely idea - I haven't watched a single full episode of Dr. Who yet, but seeing a thesis on fandom and convergence culture and the rejection of the same makes me happy, even if Jenkins (I'm assuming you're basing this on some of his work) doesn't sit well with me in all respects. But that's beside the point. To give this some exposure, how about submitting your request to metafandom?

Now to go fill out the survey. Maybe it's not so different with people starting out in LotR movie fandom that then go to secure themselves a place among the supreme obsolete Silm/HoMe nerds.

Edited for grammar fail.
