Greetings! I had a quick question for you which I hope you won't mind
answering. I was a research psychology major before I got into film
and was wondering if you took any scholarly interest in the fandom
as it relates to Indy. I'm not trying to put any of the contributors
under the microscope since it is unethical without permission anyhow and
it creates an awkwardly removed situation. And, I value my privacy
as much as the next person.
However, I am interested in people's perceptions and attitudes
about Indy; the forum is a perfect place for observing this in
action. I'm not proposing experimental design, but simple, open inquirery into people's attitudes to determine what are some factors
why people are drawn to the films and Indy. It's more of a brainstorm
than a legitamate scientific inquirery (I suppose you could call it
more of Sociology).
