HONOURS STUDY IN SOCIOLOGY ON LESBIAN IDENTITY
TITLE OF STUDY:
LESBIAN IDENTITY CONSTRUCTION AS INFLUENCED BY WESTERN TELEVISION SERIES
JANINE OOSTHUIZEN (BA Honours-student in Sociology, North-West University, Potchefstroom campus)
I am currently in the process of completing my Honours Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology. I received my Baccalaureus Artium in Psychology and Sociology in 2011.
As part of my degree, I am currently busy with a research project which focuses primarily on the possible influence of television shows such as Queer as Folk, The L Word and Glee on lesbian identity construction in South Africa. I am looking for lesbian individuals who are currently undergraduate or postgraduate students at any South African university who would be willing to participate in my research. Participation will include either an in-depth interview or the completion of a self-administered questionnaire, for those who wish to remain anonymous.
If you are acquainted with any of the noted television shows and would like to participate, please feel free to contact me.
