I wear many hats. I am a serious scholar and a serious dancer. Being in grad school means I technically shouldn’t have time for Either of these things outside of my program. I tend to compensate With the lack of sleep, but I’m working on improving that. 😊

When I’m not in the studio, in class, working at my two graduate jobs, or dancing in my room, I am researching.

My Research

It’s hard to research a topic that is constantly evolving. I could go into class and come out to have a new story or insight change everything I thought about a particular groups strategy or an individual participant.

There could also be new groups like “The Base” That form out of nowhere. In these moments I realize I don’t have enough time to accurately understand the newest iteration of a hate group and what their end game is. 

For my ethnographic work, I keep in touch with my research participants when they want to talk to me about a current issue. This keeping in touch has led to some very interesting developments I’m not yet allowed to discuss.

I want time to continue my ethnography, to delve deep into the sources and contribute to my groups in a meaningful way, (While being mindful of the 24 hour news cycle that is attached to my research).

In Short

I am asking anyone who supports my work to join me in an experiment. Help me better understand our current political climate and the dimensions of extremism in America today, and perhaps, make the online environment less hospitable for extremist recruiters.

Goals
$73 of $950 per month
This would provide me with 19 hours of uninterrupted research time, which include smaller pieces made for an audience who wants to be informed, but would rather not bogged down by academic jargon.
