Help with PhD thesis @ 04:50 pm


I’m not sure if this post is allowed here, it not I apologize in advance and please feel free to delete it.

I would like to ask some help from you with a PhD thesis.

Together with two friends I’m working on a PhD thesis about German and English children and young adults’ literature of the 20th and 21st century. We would like to focus on questions such as how children and young adults’ literature is defined and by whom and who the readers of children and young adults’ literature are. One aim of this thesis is to find out what makes this literature so interesting not only for children but also for adolescents and adults. In a first step we would like find out which books are currently read and are therefore worth analysing. To do so we have created a short questionnaire. This questionnaire can be found on our PhD website www.beyondharrypotter.com.

I would be grateful if you could fill in the questionnaire over there. Any information given is for informational purposes only and will not be shared with a third party and I promise it will not come back to haunt you. Although there is a possibility of giving us your e-mail address it’s not necessary if you don’t want to.

Also, if you could spread the information to others that like to read children and young adults’ novels and might be willing to fill in the questionnaire, I would be much obliged.

If you have any further questions, please let me know.
