The argument advanced in this chapter is that it is not possible to conceive of new perspectives on academic writing without first considering broader questions that relate to the epistemology, ontology and aesthetics of academic practice writ large. Perhaps we need to break into new territory and vault over academic practice altogether in order to queer the academic essay, change the co-ordinates of academic writing and put some steam back into critique.
