Self-described “exhibition of weirds” Farrago’s Wainscot has a suspiciously convincing webpage for Associate Professor of Sanguinary History Anna S. Oppenhagen-Petrescu, from class syllabi to CV – including the preface of her new book, snarky footnotes, and slightly ambiguous encomiums from her adviser/mentor/maker:
In my 250 years of scholarship, I had never met such an ambitious, ravenous, or charming young classicist as Anna. As work on her dissertation progressed, it became clear to me that I could serve the Community in the most profound way by Converting this young creature, despite my reservations regarding her gender. Nevertheless, I felt that my duty to the academic world was greater than my duty to personal taste, and with a clear conscience I brought Anna into the fold. My expectations have been exceeded time and time again by her exceptional career.
