Fiona Anna Groha, a sociology student at the Technical University of Berlin, is working on a research project, 'Privacy and Living', for her M.A. degree studies. The aim is to find out how privacy is established, and if and how a connection between privacy and home can be made. Fiona writes:
'I am interested in the experience home swappers gained during their stay at the exchange house or apartment.
To cover as much of the exchange ambience and individual perception as possible, it would be great to get the chance to interview some home exchangers, preferably during or soon after an exchange. Interviews will be incorporated into the research anonymously and the results presented in a concluding report.'
If you are willing to help Fiona with her research (she would interview you personally via skype or phone at a time convenient for you), please contact Home Base Holidays and we'll forward your message to her.
