Five preliminary questions for framing my research (and how they might work in my dissertation)

1. What does the prevailing relationship between producer and consumer look like? (lit review)

2. Which movements have we seen in past and do we see in present which attempt to trouble the prevailing producer-consumer relationship? (lit review & environmental scan)

3. What sorts of factors get those people who engage in alternate forms of production into those alternate forms of production? (research question)

4. What experience do those consuming the results of these alternate production methods have? (future research)

5. How much do these alternate methods work to blur the producer-consumer divide? (future research)
