Catching Up with the (New) West: The German “Excellence Initiative,” Area Studies, and the Re-Production of Inequality


In the interest of unifying the online presence of the journal Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge (ISSN # 1540-5699), its Scholarworks platform has been discontinued as of Oct. 15, 2020, and is being redirected as follows. The full free-access contents of the journal can be, as in the past, accessed directly by visiting the journal’s primary publication platform at https://www.okcir.com which is the homepage of the research center publishing the journal, OKCIR: Omar Khayyam Center for Integrative Research in Utopia, Mysticism, and Science (Utopystics). All download links of individual articles on the Scholarworks platform of the journal will direct to the corresponding issue of the journal from where further action can be taken to access the articles.
