The real sand trap of writing academically is the limiting expectation that the only ideas with any validity are the ones echoing an established precedent. That’s much easier in STEM than in the humanities. Giant leaps in one catalyze giant leaps in the other, and on the humanities side this breaks the mold and can turn into mud-wrestling in the muckity-muck woo of outdated and outmoded models for expression. Sometimes “rigor” is followed by “mortis”. Just sayin’.
