Final daft submitted!

Hi everyone,

Just a quick update from the Ivory Tower: the final draft of the Academia Obscura book has been submitted! It is now up to the lovely folks at Unbound to sort out copyeditors and proofreaders and the like. Very excited to share the finished product with you in the not-so-distant future.

One of my favourite parts of writing the book was slipping in amusing footnotes here and there. I had a lot of fun with this and hopefully they will tickle you too:





A couple of other bits of academic obscurity for you:

  • A recent blog post parodying the Pokemon Go craze: here 
  • And a guest blog, 25 PhD Feels All Doctoral Students Have, here 

Now that the unintentionally lengthy period of intensive writing is over, I shall be writing blog posts more regularly, and will include some extracts from the book in the coming months.

Don't forget to join the mailing list for future blog posts and please do encourage your cooler colleagues to support the book! Academia Obscura is also on Twitter and Facebook.
