Phoebe Goodwin is an undergraduate geography student from the University of Manchester who is studying Black Country place identity for her undergraduate dissertation. Her research title is ‘The Black Country: post-industrial place identity and its relevance in the 21st Century’. The research will explore the Black Country identity as both a place identity and a cultural identity, looking at the role of nostalgia and the everyday. In addition she is researching where people draw the Black Country place boundary and the significance of where they draw it. She is using online surveys and interviews to collect this data. and is currently recruiting participants to answer her questionnaire. At the end of the questionnaire there is an option to opt in for an interview. If you would like to complete her questionnaire then please go to here. It allows you to draw lines on a map, which is quite fun!
