To write chapter on biosemiotic medicine

I have agreed to write a book chapter on biosemiotic medicine for a book edited by Carlos Guido Musso on kidney cross talk which is prospectively to be published by Springer. My chapter will address connections between biosemiotic perspectives and human and animal health issues, and include discussion about the body as interface between human health and ecology.

#54,5: How to solve the environmental crisis

The Spring terms last writing day - with some 1.200 words written, and the revision of my article "Anticipating the societal transformation required to solve the environmental crisis in the 21st century" finally finished. Includes thorough treatment of deep ecology vs. ecomodernism. 116 references - possibly the most in any of my articles so far. One of the longest also (more than 19.000 words).

July ended up being the month this Spring (sic) with the most words written - 9.246 words, vs. 7.455 in June and 7.414 in January (top 3). Altogether 45.161 words written (academic texts) in the Spring term.

54,5 writing days is also a record, compared to the last few previous years.

And now: Summer holidays.
