HG Taylor I asked chatGPT if there was a hybrid between the polar opposites of “close reading” vs “reader response criticism” and there are many. But the one that had what I was hoping for is:

“situating literary works within their historical, social, and cultural contexts.”

which seems to be exactly the kind of direction we’ve (thankfully) gone into in some areas at least. Ok, I’m seeing the patterns.
