“A Friendly Welcome to a Hate-Filled Church” in this week’s _Chronicle_

The  Chronicle of Higher Education recently invited me to contribute a short essay on the challenge of ethnographic work with a hate group. I am thankful for editor Alex Kafka’s patience with me as we worked through several ideas. You can read it digitally here  or in the February 3 print edition of the newspaper.
