The Conrad Rule

Any academic who writes or lectures on colonialism or the colonial experience will quote, cite or otherwise refer to Joseph Conrad (particularly the Heart of Darkness), often directly, at least once, and usually twice or more in his or her output (i.e., writings, lectures, etc.).

I am currently carrying out a massive research project to try and prove this thesis. (Well, no, not really.) this!
