Information for walkers
A note regarding a participant observation study
Peter Unwin is joining the walk for three days and is hoping to use his participant observation to publish a paper reflecting some of the motivations, conversations and concerns that take place en route (he is also writing a poem a day reflecting the walk's progress).
Identifying characteristics of any participants would not be disclosed and any quotes would be anonymised.
This note is to inform walkers that Peter is going to be doing this although this will hopefully not be a barrier to free and frank conversation. Anybody who speaks with Peter during the walk and later reflects that there are points that they would not want to appear anywhere, even in anonymised forms, will have until May 26th to contact Peter (firstname.lastname@example.org) and ask that any part of their narrative be erased from the record.
