Further participation

We are currently looking for volunteers to reflect on their understandings and experiences of gender in everyday life.  We are recruiting a range of people who are over 18 and live in England or Wales.  If you are interested in participating, and/or would like to find out more,  please contact Han Newman via flag@lboro.ac.uk with ‘Participate’ in the subject line.  

What is involved?  

You will be asked to reflect on your gender experiences through a face-to-face interview with one of our research team.  The interview will aim to explore your understandings and interpretations of gender and will last for 60 to 90 minutes.

You may additionally be asked if you would like to audio/visually represent your experiences of gender in different settings using a smart phone or other audio/video technology, but this is not mandatory. This may include the recording of experiences involving gender stereotypes, sexism, gender-based assumptions, misgendering, or any other experience in which you feel that gender is made relevant or should have been made relevant.

We are particularly keen to recruit people in the 18-30 year age range and parents of young children (up to the age of around 8 or 9).  For parents of young children, the interview will seek to explore both your own and your child/ren’s understandings, interpretations, and experiences of gender.

Further information 

For further information on stages one and two, see the forrmal participant information sheet.  For those interested in taking part in an interview as a parent of young child/ren, the formal participation sheet is here.

If you have any further questions, and are interested in taking part, please contact Han Newman via flag@lboro.ac.uk using ‘participate’ in the subject line.  We look forward to hearing from you.
