Mass Observation Project (MOP)

The Mass Observation Project (MOP) is a unique UK based national life writing project about everyday life in Britain. It is a valuable resource, for research, teaching and learning. With its link to the original Mass Observation, it captures the experiences, thoughts and opinions of everyday people in the 21st century.
The MOP was revived in 1981 and currently has a national Panel of 500 volunteer participants who respond to “Directives” or open-ended questions sent to them by post or email three times a year. The Directives contain two or three broad themes which cover both very personal issues and wider political and social issues and events. Participants retain anonymity and therefore write openly and candidly.
The Project collaborates with academics nationally, across disciplines to commission Directives .
