Exploring generational differences in sexual communication
Rationale of research
The central aim of this research is to understand individual ideas about, and experiences of, power and emotional communication in the context of heterosexuality, gender and embodiment. This area of interest has developed over the last two years through the findings of three seperate but connected phases of data collection completed to date.
This research includes an online survey of 1,000 participants conducted in early 2010, followed by telephone interviews completed in the summer 2010. The final, and main, phase of data collection has now also been completed in summer 2012 in the form of 33 face to face interviews accross Scotland.
Fiona is now on a second period of maternity leave from October 2012 to September 2013 when she will return to write up and disseminate her research findings.
