Hello Prof Miller,
My name is Xiandro Lesende, and you probably don’t remember me as I am a former student of yours from the early 2000’s. I took your propaganda class, ILA class, and graduate media criticism seminar that you allowed me to take as an undergrad. I just finished reading the posted emails from your students and they sounded so familiar, as I had a similar experience when I was your student. In fact, during my time at NYU you were the single greatest influence on my thinking and intellectual development. You helped to foster an intellectual curiosity that I didn’t even know I posessed. For that I thank you and am eternally grateful.
That said, the real reason I am contacting is that I am fully aware of your situation with NYU, which I find disgraceful. In fact, I am personally offended by what is being done to you, and will make this clear in an email to the dept chair as well as the dean of the school. If there should be any other way I could be of service regarding this matter please advise, and it will be my pleasure to help. Thank you in advance.
