As some of you may have already found out, a couple of us are students at the Europa Universität Frankfurt Oder, studying Cultural Studies & Sciences. Most of our classes are actually very close to what interests us in our spare time. This semester, Elisa and I have been taking a class on the sociology of the word and concept of “alienness”.
For this class we needed to come up with a research project that deals with the topic. Our result is a fifteen question survey to find out how people feel about Berlin — do they feel alienated, do they feel right at home, does the variance in these feelings have anything to do with factors such as native home or age?
If you happen to live in Berlin, we would appreciate it a lot if you could fill out the questionnaire. It should not take you longer than five minutes. Please also share with your friends. In about ten days we’ll be ready to evaluate all the answers and naturally we will share our results with you right here on FindingBerlin.com. Of course the questionnaire remains anonymous. The questionnaire is in both English and German. Thanks for your help!
