Interesting theme.

I don't see here mentioned a (counter)example of academic
"mission creep", for contrast to cultural anthropology's
alleged "mission-shrink". The classic one would have to be
English studies, I suppose, but possibly one could identify 
a more appropriate discipline in this context ?  Just musing 
before dinner time.
