As I’ve mentioned before, ths blog has been in something of an hiatus while I’ve been doing fieldwork, as the project has mushroomed in size.
Fieldwork began with a focus group in June 2010, since when I’ve been conducting interviews and observing meetings with people from around the East Midlands (and beyond). The last piece of fieldwork will take place at the end of August, leaving 13 months to analyse and write before thesis submission.
During that time, I’m planning to reboot this blog and explore (in short form) some potential themes from the research.
What are the potential risks of doing this? Some have warned me about the possibility of academic material being…err…nicked before it’s put into a paper or thesis.
If any readers have any experience, advice or articles they can provide me with, it would be much appreciated. Particuarly as I can expect my supervisors to be rather sceptical…
UPDATE – some Twitter feedback on the question to go with the comments here on the blog.
