Hello and welcome. I wanted to start this writing outlet for a long time and am glad it is coming to life. The blog will visualize my inner debate and thoughts during my daily reading sessions. It is impossible to write about all of them - but just the ones that follow me around for some time. Topics will be centered around my research interest - Europe, the US and Middle East - and hence might also become relevant topics for some of the classes I am teaching at the University of Arizona. Thanks for reading.
