I want to talk about that paper manuscript he started working on over the summer of 2019. The last modified date of the version we have is November 15. The paper does not have a title. He was still trying different ways to make his argument.The opening sentence of this document is “ Idaho, Wyoming and Oklahoma are three of the reddest states in the country” A few sentence later he says “Republican politicians from Wyoming, Idaho and Oklahoma are solidly Republican and yet have never attainted the top positions in the party.” He notes, “It is not for a lack of trying. A few senators from these states have tried to vault themselves into the national spotlight.” I will take it from here in a minute. First let me try to summarise my understanding of his main argument.As I see it, he was trying to open and look inside the black box of the US state with its historical evolution. His explanandum or dependent variable was the resilient nature of racism in the US politics somewhat hardwired in state institutions. His explanan or independent variable was the senate. In his more nuanced wording: “enduring persistence of senatorial racism across time, place and policy”. I am not sure if he has ever used this term for his scholarship. But I think Daniel Kato was a critical historical institutionalist.

A scientometric profile of social sciences research in Turkey
Uzun, A (1998-09-01)
I surveyed the social sciences journal literature for the decade period 1987-1996 looking for papers with authors, or at least one co-author giving an address from an institution in Turkey. The number of such papers had nearly tripled from 1987 to 1996. I found that the papers are scattered into 341 journals and almost one third of all papers went to nine journals, each of which contained an average of a least one Turkish paper per year. Only two of these journals, on archaeology and anthropology, happened ...
Steven Holl : a translation of phenomenological philosophy into the realm of architecture
Yorgancıoğlu, Derya; Bilsel, Fatma Cânâ; Department of Architecture (2004)
In this thesis it is aimed to develop a particular reading of Steven Holl̕s approach to architecture. It is claimed that in Holl̕s architecture there is a philosophical depth that embraces both his thinking on and making of architecture. This thesis suggests that, the phenomenology of Maurice Merleau-Ponty, the French philosopher (1908-1961) is Steven Holl̕s main reference in achieving a philosophical depth in architecture. The thesis research focuses on understanding Holl̕s approach to architecture and its...
DFT study for the mechanical and electronic properties of Mg3BHx (x=l,4,7) compounds for hydrogen storage applications
Gencer, A.; Sürücü, Gökhan (2019-11-25)
© 2019 Author(s).The electronic devices such as cell phones, laptops etc. are a necessary part of our daily life that requires portable power sources. Hydrogen being the most abundant element on the Earth, is an excellent energy carrier with high energy capacity that enable to use hydrogen storage methods in portable power sources. In addition, hydrogen storage could be essential to store the energy obtained from the renewable energy sources. The solid state hydrogen storage is an encouraging method for hyd...
Karl Popper's Architectural Legacy: An Intertextual Reading of Collage City
Kömez Dağlıoğlu, Esin (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2016-01-01)
Colin Rowe and Fred Koetter's book Collage City has been one of the most inspiring works in the field of architecture with its elaborate and stimulating critique of Modernist and Post-war architecture and city planning. Published first as an article in 1975 and later as a book in 1978, Collage City has been one of the cornerstones of postmodern architectural and urban theory since. Philosopher Karl Popper's ideas on historicism, utopia, tradition, liberal society, etc. had a great influence in shaping the u...
Manufacturing silk/epoxy composite laminates: Challenges and opportunities
Hamidi, Youssef K.; Yalcinkaya, M. Akif; Güloğlu, Görkem Eğemen; Pishvar, Maya; Amirkhosravi, Mehrad; Altan, M. Cengiz (2019-02-06)
© 2019 Author(s).Application of natural fibers in polymer composites has been gaining popularity in several industries pursuing environmentally friendly products. Among the natural fibers with proven potential applications, silk fibers have recently received considerable attention from researchers. Silk fibers provide higher mechanical properties compared to other commonly used natural fibers such as sisal, jute, and hemp. Silk may also exhibit comparable specific mechanical properties to glass fibers. Howe...
