Contextualize

Definition

Primary objects of scholarship must be related to each other, and to extant secondary sources (prior scholarly work) within one or across multiple disciplines. Relationships may be exactly described or fuzzy. They can occur along most any conceivable dimension (authorship, language, topic, style, geographical location, period of time, etc., etc.)
