I am immensely grateful to Kathe Newman and James DeFilippis for organizing this discussion and to my colleagues for their astute, generous, and challenging engagement with my work. Their willingness to continue the conversation is all the affirmation that one could hope to receive. In this response, I comment on the ad hoc and provisional nature of academic knowledge and highlight the possibilities presented by pragmatism to forge a path to a better future.
