Interviewees for Tolkien bachelor's thesis wanted Can't Post

Hello everyone,
my name is Mirja, I'm 27 and from Germany. Being a huge Tolkien and especially Lord of the Rings fan myself, I decided to write my Bachelor's thesis on this topic.
Soon it became clear that I wanted to lay the emphasis on the effect Tolkien and his work may have on the everyday life of people who not only have read the books and/or have seen the movies, but also have grown fond of Middle Earth and its habitants in a way and maybe even import values or elements of Middle Earth into their own lives.
And this is where I would like to ask you for help. For research purposes I would like to interview about 5 to 10 people from Tolkien and Lord of the Rings forums, for example on what fascinates you precisely about Middle Earth and the Lord of the Rings. The only prerequisites are that the interviewees consider themselves fans of Tolkien and Middle Earth, and that they are from the U.S., as I am majoring in North American Studies and the Tolkien fan society in North America appears to be particularly big and thus is going to be the focus of my research.
The interviews I would like to conduct via either email or Skype, and it shouldn't take longer than an hour or so. If you are interested in participating or have any further questions, please contact me via PM or email! Thanks a lot, your help will be much appreciated!
Greetings from Berlin

I'd also love to participate! E-mail is also easiest for me. Tolkien has had a huge impact on my life. At about age 13 I decided that I'd love to name a first daughter Anna because it is Quenya for 'gift',--and I did! Not a day of my live passes that doesn't have LOTR in it somehow.
