"My topic still concerns me today, because I encounter virtually daily the mechanisms by which transnational crises evolve and are perceived that I analysed in my research in my own life or indirectly with a view to the current crisis developments e.g., in North Africa."
"I almost gave up once, because the numerous interwoven temporal, spatial and thematic strands of my work started taking on a life of their own in a sorcerer’s apprentice-type way, and I could barely keep up with them with the means of conventional narrative."
"A particular help to me at the time was that thanks to support from the Gerda Henkel Foundation, I could clear my head enough to shed some light on the dark matrix. The friendly scholarly exchange of ideas with the post-graduate programme “Socialist dictatorships as semantic identity” in a mountain village in Maramureș, Romania, was also a great help."
