RESEARCH - A CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS

 

Navigating a "Mixed Race" Identity:

perspectives and experiences of adults in Britain

Hi there!

 

My name is Naomi, and I'm a Sociology student at the University of Glasgow. For my dissertation research I want to explore how adults living in Britain experience and navigate a "mixed race" identity. I am also mixed, so this topic is very close to me and I would love to hear other people's thoughts and experiences.

 

The research will focus on three main topics:

 

  1. What does it mean to be "mixed race" in Britian today?
  2. To what extent is this identity an inherently personal one, as opposed to being a label imposed by others?
  3. To what extent is having a "mixed race" identity a positive or negative experience?

 

I am looking for participants to interview as part of my research. Interviews will be audio-recorded.

 

The interviews should last between 1hr - 1.30hrs, and the exact date and location of the interview will be arranged directly between each participant and myself in due course.

 

This research has been fully approved, so I am currently at the stage of arranging interview dates.

 

To participate, you need to be:

 

  • Over the age of 18, and
  • Living in Britain, and
  • Available to be interviewed at some point between July-September 2019.

 

If you are interested in being interviewed as part of my research, and you think you meet the criteria above, please get in touch with me via email:

Thank you!

"mixed race"

I use the term "mixed race" even though it is contested, and not all people of a mixed racial heritage identify with it. This is mostly because it is the term most frequently used in Britain to refer to the demographic I am interested in speaking to, both by the public and by academics. It is also a term that makes it clear that I am interested in the idea of race itself, rather than heritage in broader terms. People who don't use the term for themselves are still very welcome to take part in my research; discussing terminology is an important aspect of this research to me.
