My name is Rob Flanagan, and I'm a social anthropologist studying my MA at Durham University in the UK. This torrent focuses on my dissertation research into legal file sharing culture, and the motivations between artists who allow the public to download their hard work for free.
I've created these updates as a form of keeping track and making sense of my own findings, but also to allow the general public and respondents from my fieldwork the ability to feed back on my research.
Included in this folder are my contact details, a short podcast and my research proposal. I've already uploaded one podcast (link at the bottom) and I shall post future updates on my progress and anonymised transcriptions, where appropriate, of my findings. I will also discuss the theoretical implications of my results in an anthropological context, as well as engaging in an analysis of the methods I have chosen to use.
In time these torrents will hopefully provoke a discussion on both my own research into legal file sharing and Internet research on a broader level.
For the time being though I invite you to listen to the brief podcast and, should you have any questions, comments or feedback on my research, please get in touch!
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, or alternatively you can get in touch via my research blog or comment on my podcast (links below).
All the best,
MA (Anthropological Research Methods) Postgraduate Student
Department of Anthropology
