When I first heard that an Egyptian university placed fourth worldwide in scholarly productivity, and that it was due to the work of a single scholar, I couldn’t help thinking of Graham Harman churning out brilliant philosophical tomes out of American University in Cairo… Turns out this guy beats Graham handily in quantity and — inversely speaking (!) — in quality. A good reason to edit one’s own journal?
