Q: If you are from Newcastle, then why SE London?
A: We have already done a similar study in Newcastle in 2016. Our proposal for (public) funding specified a London sample for comparison - and because I lived in South London for about a decade (in Brixton and Streatham Hill), taught at Goldsmiths for a while, and had family and friends who lived in SE London(Dulwich in particular), I appreciated the diversity of the area and therefore thought it would be a good reflection of both the Borough, and the diversities of London more widely - while of course having its own particular character!
Q: Presumably, the research will be anonymous?
A: The research has gone through a very rigorous ethical review process, and all data from the project will protect the identities of participants and both their confidentiality and anonymity. There are strict guidelines that we adhere to in respect of our participants having control over any and all of their own information for the duration of the research process.
