For those of you who don't know me, I've been active in fandom since 2002, though not so much lately, because I'm working toward a master's degree in written communication. I'm currently taking a class called "Community Communication," and for the most recent assignment, we were asked to identify a communication issue in community with which we are very familiar. I chose to look at racism within fandom, based on RaceFail '09 and, more recently, Big Bang RaceFail of '10.

The follow-up paper (which is due a week from tomorrow) is to develop an action plan on how to use communication tools to address the given issue. Below the cut is a list of questions about perceptions of racism in fandom as well as questions about how we respond to such incidents. Anonymous commenting is permitted (though I'll be logging IP addresses), but if you would prefer to respond privately and receive an answer, please feel free to PM me.

I want to thank [ profile] amazonziti, who was extremely helpful in both reviewing and answering the questions below, and [personal profile] bossymarmalade, who also provided assistance. Finally, if you think this is a worthwhile survey to complete and conversation to have, please give it signal boost at your own journal.

If you have anything to add, please include it in a comment below or in a private message to me.

Thank you.
