I think I noticed a typo in this - I think you have the word compromised when you mean something else...
It all looks great though! Good luck.

Subject: Call for Participants - Feminist Disability Studies Research
My name is Ella Houston, I am a PhD student in Health Research within the Faculty of Health and Medicine at Lancaster University. I am embarking on a research project for the requirements of my PhD, titled ‘The Representation of Disabled Women in Anglo-American Advertising: Examining how cultural disability tropes impact on the wellbeing of disabled women’. My research background is mainly compromised of feminist disability studies research. In particular, I am interested in how the study of disability representations in culture may enhance society’s engagement and appreciation of inclusion and bodily diversity.
I am currently recruiting for participants who may be interested in contributing and lending their time and efforts to contribute to my research study. Participants must identify as disabled women, specifically, having visual impairment or mental health issues. The focus of the research is to analyse participant narratives (stories regarding life experience), reflection on a range of advertisements featuring disabled women who are portrayed as having the stated impairments and engagement with feelings of ‘wellbeing’, especially in relation to the ideas raised by the advertisements (sourced for television, magazines and newspapers). Participation in the research project will involve one interview (lasting no longer than 60 – 120 minutes) in a convenient place chosen by the participant. The research study does not involve publication of any personal information. All personal details, including names will be anonymised.
Additionally, location is not an issue – I will travel to the proposed (UK based) setting of your choice. I am unable to offer reimbursements for your travel, however soft drinks and snacks will be provided.
If you are interested in contributing your time and efforts to my research project I would be very grateful if you could express interest by contacting me via my email address [log in to unmask] If you have any questions relating to the research study please do not hesitate to contact me on this email address.
