Hello All,

 

Two years ago I started a study on NecronomiCon in Providence. With the upcoming return of the convention, I’m continuing the study and looking for research participants. I’m an associate professor of sociology at the University of New Haven. I’ve also been a fan of HPL since I was a teenager. My topic is broad, but I’m basically looking at the different ways fans experience and interact with their interests.

 

If you are planning to attend NecronomiCon 2017 in Providence, please consider completing a short survey (about 15 minutes) to share your thoughts. You can access the survey here:

 

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/28S5VMJ

 

You must be 18 years or older to participate. You may participate regardless of whether you completed the previous survey in 2015. The survey includes questions about what you like about Lovecraft’s work in general, why you plan to go to the convention, what you hope to do there, and similar topics. More information is available on the first page of the survey.

 

Thank you for your help,

-Jeff

Last chance!

 

Iä! NecronomiCon is nearly upon us. Consequently, I will soon be disabling the survey asking about your plans to attend. The survey will close at the stroke of midnight, tonight! Today (Wednesday, August 16th) is the last day to participate.

 

Here’s the link one last time:

Many thanks to those who have already participated. Also, I’ll be posting another survey opportunity AFTER the convention for those who attended

 

-Jeff

As promised, with NecronomiCon 2017 now complete I’m continuing my research project about the convention and all things Lovecraftian. If you attended the convention and would like to help, please consider completing a short survey (about 15 minutes) and tell me about your experience. You can access the survey here:

 

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CL5WFTQ

 

You may participate in this second survey even if you did not participate in the first survey. You must be 18 years or older and affirm that you attended NecronomiCon 2017 in Providence. The survey includes questions about what you like about Lovecraft or Lovecraftian things in general, why you went to the convention, what you thought of it, and similar questions. More information is available on the first page of the survey.

 

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

 

-Jeff

Final call!

 

With NecronomiCon 2017 a quickly fading memory, I will soon be disabling the survey. If you attended the convention and would like to share your experience, please do so soon. On Tuesday (9/19), at the stroke of midnight, the survey will disappear forever!

A heart-felt ‘thank you’ to all who have participated so far,

 

-Jeff
