PS Gentle reader be aware that there is a way of writing CVs that habitually obscures the gaps and the aporias that inform a life process that never is as linear and clean-cut as the CV-format might suggest. My path has certainly included many turns, upsets and crises. These experiences inform as much (if not more) my analytical practice than any professional or academic “accomplishments”.
