Hello, everyone! Thanks to an understanding faculty, I'm writing my MA thesis on Pennsic. Because I'm in Geography, I'm looking at it as a temporary urban space. I am looking for people to participate in my study in two ways: 1) a short interview that will give me some demographic data and 2) an interview or questionnaire that will take half an hour to an hour and look at the way in which you experience and interact with the spaces created at Pennsic. If you're interested in being interviewed or filling out a questionnaire, there will be an opportunity to say so at the end of the survey, or you can contact me directly at the address/phone number below. The survey is set up so that people who will be attending Pennsic for the first time this year can also fill it out, as well as those who no longer attend.

All information will be kept confidential, and the information from the survey will only be published in aggregate form. If you have any questions or concerns, or if you would like a paper or email copy of the survey to fill out instead, feel free to contact me.

If you know someone who might be interested in participating, feel free to forward this email and link to them. Please let me know if you forward it to a mailing list, so I can avoid duplicate postings.

For survey, visit the original article link.

If, for some reason, you get an error message when you try to take the survey, please wait a little while and try again; it may be busy! (NOTE: If the error is about missing an ID number, make sure the URL ends in 105 and try again.)

Many thanks!
