Coming Down From the Clouds: On Academic Writing - The Chronicle
A defense rather than an apologia for scholarly writing. We're not writing for The General Public. We're writing on the edge of knowledge - and that requires some effort. "Yes, some academic writing is more abstruse than it needs to be. No doubt, scholarship should not be hidden behind expensive paywalls. And, yes, academics, like all people, are shaped by the conditions of their employment. ... But the story is more complicated." "there is a risk when we mistakenly assume that public and scholarly writing are the same thing — that one is good and clear and the other is needlessly complex."
