The discussion in the June 2021 issue of CJAS centers upon Eurocentrism in area studies, especially on the works, narratives, and studies about Asia, Africa, China, and Eurasia. As an interdisciplinary platform, the June 2021 issue of CJAS features five original research articles and a review essay, along with two reviews of recent books, and a project final report on the competitiveness of Turkey's tourism industry. The articles in the June 2021 issue focus on the interconnected relationship between area studies and international relations, sociology, global studies, anthropology, geography, history, philosophy, politics, and society.
Cappadocia Journal of Area Studies (CJAS) is an interdisciplinary platform that publishes original peer-reviewed research on the interconnected relationship between area studies (Middle East, African, Chinese, East Asian, American, South East Asian, European, Central Asian, South and Central American, and Russian Studies) and international relations, sociology, global studies, anthropology, geography, history, law, philosophy, politics, public administration, public policy, religion, and society in the globalized world. As an interdisciplinary platform, the journal is necessarily heterodox ontologically, epistemologically, and methodologically. The journal especially welcomes research utilizing critical theory to scrutinize how area studies, society, and politics interact in structuration processes that reinforce, reify, or radically change extant sociopolitical praxis, ideational structures, institutional forms, and power distributions that alter, for good or ill, social, political and economic experiences in these geographical regions.
