Participants for Senior Thesis:

Hi! I am an anthropology major doing a senior thesis on toxicity and harassment in massive multiplayer online games (MMOs). I am interested in hearing about the experiences of different players, and I am looking for male gamers to participate in a short interview (female interviewees are recruited from BMC). I am interested to speaking with gamers who communicate online with other players! The interview will take about 15-30 minutes and can be scheduled at your convenience. Please email me at kpatton@brynmawr.edu if you are interested! All participants will be kept anonymous.
Thank you, Kayla Patton
