PhD Dissertation Involving LG15 and ARGs

Hi Everyone!

I am reposting this once more because both GregGallows and I got a chance to talk with Burcu and she is amazing and we'd both really love to see her project succeed. Here again is her post from the forum:

I've been directed by BrokenKid to repost this here. You may see the call at different threads as I was trying to figure out where exactly to post it:

I am a graduate student who is writing her dissertation on performative narratives across platforms. Well, you can guess where I am going with this.
My first chapter looks at performative narratives in the print medium (i.e. some experimental novels such as Don Quixote, Tristram Shandy, Pale Fire, and the open-source novel, Exit Stategy). My last two chapters talk about disruptive narratives created by griefers in Second Life (a virtual world, for those of you who are not familiar), and my second one (which will come right after the print chapter and will exemplify how an open source narrative could possibly work) is on ARGs and Lonelygirl15.

People whom I’d be interested in talking to:
1)Anyone who is a puppetmaster and was involved in launching an LG15 ARG.
2)Anyone who had created fanfiction about LG15 (should be tons of people who have done that here).
3)Anyone who is a veteran in the LG15 forums and has been following the story for awhile.
4)Anyone who knows interesting people to talk to.

My name is Burcu Bakioglu.

Ping me if you are interested in chatting with me. Thank you all!


She's also working on researching ARGs outside our community, so if you participated in promotional ARGs such as the recent The Dark Knight or Cloverfield ARGs, it would also be awesome if you contacted her.

Thanks for your time!
