The humanities rely on bureaucratic language that uses assessment standards and appeals to excellence as a mode of surveillance. These "standards" are in fact a status quo way of economically managing institutions to prevent real engagement. An exposure after the humanities does not assume the boundaries defined by institutions and markers. It entails a relation to alterity that puts every "ground" of the humanities into question.
