You're probably right that teachers of humanities courses may already employ techniques that work in flipped classrooms. But the difference isn't that students read before they go to class. The "flip" seems to be what a student would normally do for homework in a traditional setting s/he does in classroom and what a student would normally do in the classroom in a traditional setting s/he does for homework. So for humanities course students may spend most of their class time in small writing workshop groups or doing close-readings, and spending their time out of class listening to a brief explanation of concepts or watching a lecture.There are many traditional lecture-style teachers in the humanities--at least enough that the flipped classroom is worth discussing.
