Hi there!

My name is Alessandro, I live, work and study in Italy at the master's degree course in Conference Interpreting of the University of Bologna.

At the moment I have to prepare my master's degree thesis, and this crazy idea came to my mind: to conduct a a research on humour, cinema and ethnicity in four different countries! The topic is one of the most difficult ever, so I need your help!

For this reason I created a blog, ( http://carnelevarium.blogspot.com ) and a page on facebook ( http://www.facebook.com/pages/Carnelevarium-Culturarum/264050860285550 ) on which you can find a questionnaire about the topic of my research.

I would really appreciate if you could have a look at either one of the questionnaires and complete one of them! On each page (both Facebook's and Blogspot's) you will find all necessary instructions. Just read them carefully and... enjoy your time! It is FUN, and it will not take more than 35 minutes.

I count on YOU!

Thanks a lot in advance,
Alessandro

I don't get it Sep 30, 2011

I viewed the first video but don't see any questions about it anywhere. If I have to sit through all of them before asking the questions, I'm afraid I'll have forgotten most of their contents or my own initial impressions of them.

As for my reaction to the Mr Bean vid, the funniest thing in it for me was the shop sign in the background: "Le Chip Shop"...

Questions Sep 30, 2011

Was it the blog or the facebook page you were viewing?

Anyway, in both pages you find a 'square', in blue and beige... an embedded version of the questionnaire.... it's pretty straightforward if you read the instructions (I did my super best to make everything easily accessible and understandable)

1) answer the questions in sec.a (personal info)
2) watch video 1, answer question 1 of section b, video 2, question 2 and so on..

You won't be getting a "pure" sample, I'm afraid Sep 30, 2011

There would be things some of us may have seen too much of. Meaning, we'd be missing the "element of surprise in a matrix of expectancy" that Sontag thought was key...
