As part of group of over 40 researchers from all over the world, led by Professor Martin Barker from Aberystwyth University in the UK, we are now conducting an international project to gather thousands of people’s views on Game of Thrones.
The research project is entirely self-funded, and is not connected with HBO or George R. R. Martin in any way. It is being conducted by a group of university researchers with a large interest in fantasy films and television. Some of the researchers involved also worked on The World Star Wars Project, The World Hobbit Project, and the Watching The Lord of the Rings Project.
The researchers for the Game of Thrones Research Project have very recently launched an online survey, which should take around 20 minutes to complete, on the project’s website at www.questeros.org. We want to gather thousands of people’s views on the series, and we are depending on people’s willingness to spread the word about the project, telling their friends and relatives and mentioning it online on their blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and anywhere else that they post.
The results and findings of the project will be made publicly available, and the survey will be open well into 2017 after the much-anticipated Season 7 finally airs. If you have any questions about the Game of Thrones Research Project, you can read more information about it here.
