Hi there! It has been a long and busy trimester, finishing lots of things and starting new ones. I’ll keep you updated about everything, as always. To celebrate the new layout, I would like to share with you a great video. A wonderful interview to Pierre Bourdieu on his book Homo Academicus (in french, je suis désolé). Worth […]Read more "New Layout"
The most expensive cultural production on the history of humankind was released today (fanfare!) I’m talking of Destiny, obviously. What can I say? I’m not a great player.

As I told you a few months ago, I opened a tumblr for short notes, reserving history of the go for more elaborated posts. I’ve not change my mind about that. I have worries about language. As you can easily […]Read more "A new space"
Dear all, I know it has been a long, long time… but I can give you a good pretext. I’m now the proud father of two… My youngest son, Xabier, is a two month old healthy baby, and if you think that facebook is time consuming, you must try with two kids at […]Read more "Coming Back"
