The purpose of this study is to discover and understand the importance of the death of Matthew Shepard on the current students at the University of Wyoming. In end, I hope to answer the following question: Is Matthew Shepard's death and person a salient issue on the UW campus for students? If so, what is the surrounding discourse? In this discussion of discourse I will look at issues of Wyoming's "hate state" reputation, what is salient in contemporary student opinion, myth-making, and other themes identified in the research process. This research is two-fold. First students will be surveyed in public campus areas, and then offered an opportunity to participate in an interview to explain their perspectives.
