Can't sleep with this rattling around my head (or with heartburn) so welcome to Night Tweets with Jon:

On Humanities Scholarship and Not Being Fandom
For people outside the Humanities, their last contact with our work and process is high school, where the big questions are "What was the author trying to achieve? What do you think the author was thinking here?"
By the time you hit original research, a lot of what we do is asking "How does the text - almost irrespective of what the author says about it - fit into wider contexts, cultural trends and paradigms of which the author may only be aware in hindsight, or deny altogether?"
