What is the purpose of the study?
This research will focus on the children of Roman Catholic priests (CORCPs) (though of course you may no longer be a child). My aim is to investigate links between CORCP’s use of social media and any emerging group identity. I would like to assess whether there are differences in individual and collective identities between those who do and do not use social media. I would also like to see how the experiences of CORCP fit in with our current knowledge of organized religion, feminist discussions of silencing and oppression, identity formation among vulnerable groups and the impact of social media.
This is research being carried out in partial completion of the requirements for a PhD at the Open University. All information which is collected about you during the course of the research will be kept in accordance with the Data Protection Act. Personal details will be completely de-identified.
Should you have any further questions about this study please don’t hesitate to contact me.
