Work of research

Post by Margaux » Fri Apr 15, 2011 12:36 am

I am a Swiss student in Ethnology and I am writing a project about the new-age’s aspect of the Burning Man. Also I have never participated to the event, I’m really interested in it.
I would like to ask some questions to people who participated or who want to participate to the Burning Man. I am interested in hearing your experiences and opinions about the Festival in order to have a better understanding of it. I can ensure you that your answers will remain anonymous and won't be pusblished.
If you are interested, tell me and I send you the questions.
Thank you very much in advance

Some people even think it's a church.

Tales of the Playa might be of interest.
The Man Burns Tonight is fiction, but may tell you more about it than any study.
There is a Malcolm in the Middle episode too.
Sort of a Melies version of it.

Although I do appreciate your appellation, you really should do your own fieldwork. :)
