To help me get some answers to said questions (apart from my own answers, of course--I already know what those are, and I must admit that I do not find them terribly interesting), I’ve put together a questionnaire, and hope to circulate it far and wide to feminist pop culture bloggers across, well, the feminist blogosphere, and get their (I am sure far more interesting) answers.
I’m going to be presenting at two quite delightful conferences (on pop culture and feminist activism, respectively) about this research later this year, and hope that I'll have some neat responses to talk about by then.
Which is where you come in, dear readers—if you yourself are a blogger, or know someone fantastic who is, or know some fantastic blog or book or article which I might want to read on the subject… please do let me know! You can e-mail me with any and all thoughts or questions, or interest in filling out my magical questionnaire (fingers crossed that some of you wish to do the latter!) at email@example.com. It would delight me to hear from you!
And just so you know, I am treating these questionnaires much as though I were a sociologist/journalist (used to dealing with the living) rather than a historian (used to dealing with the dead)—confidentiality and anonymity assured and guaranteed, there will be full disclosure about how I intend to use the info, I get, etc., etc. You’d think I dealt with the living all the time!
