* Discussing the para-academic as a position of "intimate exteriority" (Nicola Masciandaro). Signing declarations of impartiality, detachment-engagement and the recent wave of nationalist cultural policies in Romania. The experience of corruption as putrescience, vital smearing, proximity and living in high density herds/swarms/mass gatherings. (definitions of detachment)
