Blog for the Gender and Digital Culture project, a study exploring the impact of digital media and communications on (gendered) relationships and interactions
We at the Gender and Digital Culture project are about to launch the first part of our research programme, and we would like to hear from you! Are you a blogger, Tweeter or Facebooker in the context of your work? Do you use email to communicate with peers and colleagues? Do you post YouTube videos in a professional capacity? Then we would be very grateful for your thoughts to help us build up information about how professionals are using digital media to enhance and transform working life – and how those changes impact on different genders.
This project grew out of personal experiences of both the positives and negatives of digital culture’s developing role in the workplace. But without hearing the stories of other users, our own experiences will always be anecdotal evidence. By completing our short survey, you will be helping us to build the first collection of data on different professional interactions with digital media, and contributing to our final aim of developing and promoting coherent practices to ensure that these interactions are positive. We are very grateful for your help, and we hope to use your kindness as a foundation to help others.
The survey will be launched shortly – please check back in on the blog in the next week or so. You can take the survey anonymously, and must be over 18 years old to participate. You may be assured that we will keep your responses secure, but they may be used to develop research articles and to promote the results of the project across digital and traditional media. Thank you very much for your time, and we will be back in touch with the survey results.
UPDATE: 1 July 2013 – the survey has launched! Here it is.
