I am writing a book chapter on Prince Fans- Please support my study

Dear purple fam,

I am looking for interview partners, any age, gender s.o. for my new academic project about Music in/and/as faith conception. I am particulary interested in the question how Prince influenced your understanding of faith, through his musical message or your individual fam practice. For instance, how his former appoach to connect sprituality with sexuality, and then replacing sexuality with spirituality, conveting to the JW. And even on how, his musics message, may have helped you through tough times and if you would consider this as some cind of faith concept/practice.

I am really looking forward to hearing from you. Of course all interviews, chats s.o. are handled anonymous and used exclusively for the second edition of this book:

http://www.amazon.de/Call-Me-Seeker-Listening-Religion/dp/0826417132

and a presentation at Oxford University, UK.

Please support this study, to make Prince's music and his fams a subject of academic diskussion.

Don't quite understand what you want, but would love to share my experiences fro your study, especially as an atheist, gay, socialist, kiwi fan of Prince.

Cant use your Amazon brouhaha as not very connected or computer literate here in NZ, is there any other way to contact you. Is there a questionair or something.

Got some kind of love for you, and I don't even know your name

Have to say, prince's take on religion over the years has been so hodge-podge, contradictory and, to a casual observor, influenced by conspiritorial readings of the bible that it's hard to take it seriously. He likes God, that's about as much as I got.

This seems to be the level that academia operates on these days. (I'm more or less convinced that anything outside of the hard sciences is a waste of space.) lol
We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.
