@NeinQuarterly says goodbye to academe and hello to whatever
By Eric Jarosinski
I regret to inform you that this will not be the light-hearted goodbye to the academy I started writing weeks ago. Nor the gin-soaked rant it inevitably became. Nor the self-serving sob story I tell myself in my weaker moments. Nor, perhaps, any other of the many subgenres of what has come to be known as „Quit Lit.“
Because, let’s be honest, the only thing worse than a German professor trying to be light-hearted is a soon-to-be ex-German professor trying to write a gin-soaked rant without extensive footnotes.
