Recruitment of participants to the adoption and names project began in January 2023. We have been so pleased with people's interest in the project! We have now recruited our target number of participants who are either adult adoptees or adopters and so recruitment of participants is now closed. Thank you to everyone who has already shared their stories with us. It has been our privilege to hear them.
We at the names and adoption study are pleased to announce the publication of a journal article focusing on the multiple understandings of what surnames and surname changes mean to both adult adoptees and adopters.
Our latest podcast features the project researchers, Jan Flaherty and Hannah Deakin-Smith, in conversation. We discuss how the project has been progressing and our experience of participating, as researchers.
