Call for Participants - Hate Crime Research

We are promoting this project on behalf of a local PhD researcher, Leah Burch.

Do you self-identify as a disabled person?

Have you experienced any form of hate, or hate crime in relation to your sense of identity?

This could include, but is not limited to, disability/impairment, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, social status, age, lifestyle preferences.

I am asking for disabled people to take part in my research on hate crime.

Objective of the research:

This research is interested in your experiences and understandings of hate and hate crime. I would like to hear about how these experiences impact your sense of identity. I am also interested to hear about how you manage and/or respond to hate and hate crime. Your experiences are crucial to gaining a better understanding of hate crime and how to tackle it.

What is Involved in the Research?

Your participation in the research would include two workshops one at the beginning of the research and one at the end. This is to explore the meaning of hate crime as an informal group discussion.

There is also the opportunity to get involved with making diaries about your experiences, and then discuss these in interviews, one to one with the researcher.

Primary Researcher: Leah Burch
Supervisors: Mark Priestley & Thomas Campbell
