Regional Sacred / Profane Survey

With the assistance of Dr. Amy Rock, Visiting Professor of Geography of Ohio University's Department of Geography, I am expanding the focus of the original research on the nature of E. Durkheim's work on the Sacred and the Profane to incorporate region and frequency of access to the internet as contributing factors to how one sees events and objects in the world as either Sacred, Revered, Mundane, Profane or Taboo.

This is an elaboration of my 5-Step model that will (hopefully) be distributed to several four-year universities throughout the Ohio Appalachian region (shown above in blue).

We will be examining the impact of A) internet access on the concepts of the Sacred as well as B) region (county and state).

The Survey Model, linked here, will go live in July for a test run before being implemented at as many of the 4-year universities as possible.

This would expand the demographic data points to the following:
  • Age
  • Sex
  • Highest Educational Level Attained
  • Military Service (if any)
  • Religious Affiliation
  • Religious Service Attendance
  • Marital Status
  • Home County
  • Home State
  • Frequency of Internet Access
  • Location of Internet Access

  • As always, if you have any questions about my research please feel free to contact me through Shawnee State at my Email Address linked here.
