Mass Observation Archive :: Nathan Manning
I'm working on a project which uses the Mass Observation Archive to explore political (dis)engagement qualitatively and over time. Today I sorted a sample of the large amount of data the archive holds on the elections. Each little stack represents a person's responses to elections between 1983-2010. I'm hoping that this research will shed some light on why electoral turnout has been in decline and how people feel about electoral politics. Now I just have to read it all!
