There are many reasons why my academic career didn’t pan out, but among them is undoubtedly the fact that I didn’t publish very much. For example, I never turned my dissertation on the Baader-Meinhof Gang into a book (though part of my research did end up in an obscure, Canadian journal called, Border/Lines).
When I did publish, it was essays like this one on the politics of gangsta rap.
Now, of course, I “publish” pretty much every day!
Life is so strange.
