    ONLINE SURVEY REQUEST

    Rhianna Morse is doing doctoral research at Brunel London University in the topic of Film and Television Studies. Her research is titled Windows of Fantasy: The Significance of Science Fiction and Fantasy Film and Television Posters. The aim of the research is to explore the significance of science fiction and fantasy posters for individuals and groups as a source of cultural significance and meaning. This could help generate a better appreciation of what posters really mean to their owners. As part of this, she is searching for adults (18-80) owning science-fiction and fantasy poster(s) who could participate in her research project by completing an online survey. Would you be willing and able to help? More information and the link to the Online Survey can be found on her PhD Study Website
