The blog’s previous tagline – “Notes from the periphery” – was inspired by two facts: a) I’m not a political insider and b) I used to live in Umeć, which is not exactly the centre of the known universe. Considering that Odense is not Umeć, the tagline had become a bit misleading – Odense may not be a major political or economic centre but the city is pretty centrally placed in Denmark. And Odense’s city centre doesn’t have that suburban feel which haunted central Umeć.
Fortunately, the recent move of the Department of Political Science in Odense to a trailer park located between two parking lots provided me with the inspiration necessary to come up with a new tagline. So what you have now are the notes of a trailer park political scientist! đ
