University of Manchester Fieldwork

by coopsd » 16 Apr 2019, 08:40

Hi,

My name is Sean and I am a student at the University of Manchester. I will be coming to Sfakia next week to carry out a research proposal as part of assessment for one of my units for my course, Geography. To help my research proposal, we are looking to interview returning tourists to Sfakia. This interview would consist of some closed questions but mainly an open discussion around the changing economic landscape that has been experienced. This interview would need to be carried out on Saturday 4th May, if anyone is available for a maximum of 30 minutes it would be hugely appreciated and would really help us with our research proposal. I look forward to hearing back from anyone and if anyone has any questions, we would be happy to answer them.

Many Thanks

Dear Sean and Luke, Please be warned that the local people here in Chora Sfakion have really had enough of answering questions from young British people about "austerity". Tourists will probably be less unhappy.
Good luck with your trip.
Peter

Thank you for the reply Peter. Yes, we understand that it is a sensitive topic in regards of locals, therefore we are mainly looking for returning tourists as they may have noticed a change in their years of visiting Sfakia.
Thanks,
Sean

Hi Sean,

So your research topic has changed from Austerity to Changes in patterns of tourism.

Are you looking to interview regular visitors to Sfakia while they are in Sfakia AND while you are in Sfakia?
All the best,

OK, so you are looking for:

1) returning visitors to Sfakia who are there between 30th of April and the 6th of May, 2019
2) and are willing to be interviewed with both open and closed questions, which will take no longer than 30 minutes to conduct
3) regarding Changes in patterns of tourism

What do you suggest they do, in order to participate?
All the best,
