Hello everyone!

My name is Kourtney and I’m a graduate student at the University of Oregon. I’m currently working on a study for my thesis regarding anime conventions and the COVID-19 response in 2020. The aim of the study is to look at how COVID-19 has changed the convention landscape, including responses, reactions, and new changes in the way of virtual cons.

As such, I would like to interview anyone who had planned to attend FanimeCon 2020 about their convention experiences, this last years’ changes made due to COVID-19, and ideas about how it might affect anime cons in the future. I’d also like to speak to members who worked on the virtual convention elements for 2020 or any staff members. Interviews will be 20-30 minutes held over Zoom, by appointment. If you are interested, please send me a message so I can provide more details and set up interview times.

Thank you!

Can I join, please? I would like to know in what way do you intend to interview, like if you're gonna interview one by one or by group.

I sent you a DM, but I'll also answer here in case others have the same question!

I plan to do interviews online, likely through Zoom, Discord, or another program. They are done one-on-one without others and at your convenience with your comfort in mind.

Hi!!! I was originally going to staff for Fanime 2020 last year. I also attended Crunchyroll Expo virtually last year and was one of the cosplay finalists for the Cosplay Cup so I have some experience in terms of how that was handled both before and during the event. I'd be pleased to talk to you about my experiences. (I have a 4 year old daughter so we'll have to schedule the call/Zoom session). You can reach me at michelle.rogoyski@gmail.com or kayacosplaytutorials@gmail.com.
