Dear Dr. Haltinner:
My name is Anna Hammons, I am a sophomore at the University of Idaho and I am in Russ Meeuf’s media writing class. Russ has assigned a semester long project that requires each student to research a large issue that also relates locally for each individual. I am from Coeur d’Alene and the Aryan Nation has been very prevalent in the area, and white supremacy groups have affected our country in a huge way. One of our upcoming assignments is to interview a faculty member who has done research that somewhat relates to our topic. I reached out to Russ for help in finding someone who fits the criteria, and he recommended you! I would love to set up an interview to learn from your findings in your research! I understand that much of your work on hate groups is not published yet. However, I would love to be able to review your work before we meet so I could have questions prepared. I would love to set up a meeting time at your convince!
Thank you for your time!
