Welcome! You are being asked to participate in a research study conducted by Prof. Sabina Magliocco of the Department of Anthropology at California State University, Northridge.

You are eligible to participate if you are 18 years of age or older and identify as a practitioner of one of the modern Pagan religions. You are not eligible to participate if you are under 18 years of age or do not identify as Pagan.

If you choose to be in the study, you will complete an anonymous survey. This survey will help us learn more about fairy lore among practitioners of contemporary Paganisms. The survey will take about 30 minutes to complete, depending on the amount of detail you choose to include in your responses.

If you decide to participate, you will be asked to complete a survey about stories and beliefs you know regarding the fairies, fae, fair folk, sĂ­dhe, trolls, pixies, and related beings. The possible risks and/or discomforts associated with the procedures described in this study include fatigue and boredom. This study involves no more than minimal risk. There are no known harms or discomforts associated with this study beyond those encountered in normal daily life.

You can skip questions that you do not want to answer or stop the survey at any time. Your responses are anonymous, and no one will be able to link your answers back to you. Please do not include your name or other information that could be used to identify you in the survey responses.

This study is voluntary. If you do not wish to participate, please close your browser window to exit the survey.
