Dissertation Survey

by tbrooks1992   October 9, 2013  

I am currently undertaking research into the identity of road cyclists as part of my undergraduate Geography degree at Keele University. Part of my research involves a short online survey and I would be extremely grateful if anyone with a few minutes to spare would be prepared to take the survey via the link below. It shouldn't take more than 10 minutes at most.

Thanks in advance for your participation, it really will be very helpful and is greatly appreciated.

Done.

Would be interested to know what element of your course this contributes to. Transport?

Has Keele moved away from mostly two-subject Honours degrees now? I studied Geography there in the 1980s and found that studying two subjects diluted the energy one could devote to either of them, though I chose to go there because of a number of other factors. I wonder how much it has changed since then.

Thanks for your response. Keele is still very much known for its two subject degrees but I study single honours Geography. My dissertation focuses on "mobilities" which is a relatively new approach that does draw quite heavily on transport geography but brings more of a social science element by, for example, focusing more on the meaning and the experiences of movement rather than seeing it simply as a means of getting from "A to B". Something that I think is rather relevant, especially when looking at cycling. Thanks again for your help.

It sounds like Mobilities stretches beyond the traditional (but flexible) boundaries of Geography into other Social Sciences. I would be interested to read more about it. If you feel like sharing it or any resources you know of feel free to drop me an email via my profile. Thanks, Simon.

Done. Good luck with the course and I hope the survey makes for an interesting cross-section of opinions. Will you publish a summary of the results?

Hi, I just completed the survey too late! Probably worth taking it down or editing the header to say don't fill it in I hope you got what you wanted. If you are interested in urban cycling pop into cc cycles in Crewe where we are working to affect LSTF project.
