Academia Obscura

by Glen Wright

Hardback Publication Date: 27/11/2017

RRP  $29.75 $29.25

If you think academia is a prestigious place of serious, erudite professors . . . think again.

Step inside the ivory tower and let Glen Wright guide you on a journey through the weird, wonderful and often bizarre history of academe, from the very earliest in-jokes of medieval scribes.

Learn how one cat tricked some of the greatest minds into awarding it tenure, how Colonel Gaddafi co-authored a thesis, and why some rats wear polyester trousers.

This irreverent book filled with levitating frogs, defecating penguins, and super-specific scientific research shows you the rather sillier side of scholarly life.

Academics will never take themselves too seriously again. And neither will anyone else.
