Your research looks interesting. I am not sure what your focus will be, but I know many members of the Lex would be willing to help out.

Hi!

Like every other poster on this thread I’m a student doing my thesis on Twilight. I’m focussing on the online fan communities - which got me interested in the Twilight Saga in the first place. If you’ve got a few minutes to help me out with a quick online survey (just 7 questions) I’d be really grateful http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/FLYKZQT

Thanks so much,

Louise

P.S. I don’t ask for any information (names / addresses etc) that could identify the survey takers and this is for study purposes only.

Hi

I'm a postgraduate student, currently writing my dissertation. I have decided to explore the cultural phenomenon of the Twilight Saga Movie Franchise and the backlash in the media as to whether it encourages negative stereotypes or positive role models and portrayals of romance. I am a twilight fan and my intention is to get to the heart of this phenomenon and I'd be really interested to hear what you think. So basically if you are willing to help me by doing a questionnaire or interview depending on time constraints and location I would be extremely grateful. Please help me make this the best dissertation ever. I've have posted two links below, the first is Part 1 of the survey and the second is Part 2.

Thank you!

Part 1

Part 2

Please complete both part 1 and part 2 of the survey and spread the word!! Thanks!

What twilight means for me?....
Twilight is an escape for me. Whenever I'm upset I just open the book. I think that I may be having a bad day but Bella is being hunted by vampires. Of course she don't even exist but it feels good to know that there is someone, real or made up, that has bigger problems. And I know that there is always a happy ending. No matter what happens in the middle everyhting is good in the end. And so it means that no matter how big the problem is it can be fixed.

How it affects my life?.....
Twilight opened me to a brand new genre of books that is now my favorite. When Twilight the movie came out I didn't want to see it cuz I was scared of vampires. And now.... :lol:

What I have learned from it.
Twilight made me feel better about myself. That no matter how I look like there will always be someone who will love me. That I'm unique in my own way just like Bella is.

Sorry about the English.

Heya,

I'm doing a presentation at my university all about teenage subcultures and cultural phenomenon and I am focusing on the Twilight saga becuase it is my favourite collection of books and films. I was just wondering if anyone had 5 minutes to spare to help me out? I would be so grateful! It's only 5 questions and I can pm you so it would be totally private!

Hope to talk to you soon.

TwiGrad x.

Hi! I'm an undergrad student doing a research paper on the reading habits of Twilight readers and I've created a survey as part of my primary research. It's only 7 questions long and it's completely anonymous and I DESPERATELY need people to take it because I have a draft due pretty soon. So please help a poor, tired undergrad out and take my survey! It's painless, I promise! Here's the link to the survey if you want to check it out (and hopefully take it):
