Areas and Ideas

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Bayat's essay examines the divide between area studies and the social science disciplines. A truly productive engagement with and critical reflection on the social sciences, Bayat argues, is possible only by intimate area knowledge, wide perspectives, a comparative lens, and a search for meaningful knowledge directed at human emancipation.
