Tales from academia

Something between a disclaimer and a confession

In my free time, I often do what I do in my working time. I write. These stories are different from my academic writing, though. They are crafted from real-world events that often stay in the margins, invisible to most, as if they come from a Ferrantian universe of blurred spaces. If you are looking for some of my non-academic writing that is related to life in academia, you are in the right place. I cannot promise that you will have fun, but I do promise that you will return.
