Comforting thoughts for the recent post-structuralist:

  • If it’s all meaningless nonsense, you can pretend you were in on the con from the beginning.
  • Foucault almost sounds rude, if you say it slowly.
  • You can’t answer your relatives when they ask why you’re doing a history degree – but neither can your supervisor.
  • Wine.
  • The books still sell.
  • Well, sort of.
  • Wine.
  • It’s like dressage – no one really understands it, but everyone just sort of nods.
  • Wine.
