Historians Being Mean

Twitter directs me to Historians Being Mean: A Glossary, by Margo Shea. It’s a couple of years old, but quite helpful.

“Words to avoid include alterity, hybridity, semiotics, subaltern, parrhesia, affect, discursive, among others. If your mom wouldn’t use it in a sentence (and your mom’s not a feminist scholar) avoid it.”
