The essays gathered in this debut (I, 1, Spring 2002) issue of Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge were written by undergraduate students enrolled in various sociology courses offered at SUNY-Binghamton and SUNY-Oneonta. What these courses shared was their common use of the sociology of self-knowledge as a strategy for learning about their respective subject matters. Each course required students to engage throughout the semester in an ongoing self-exploratory sociological research focusing on a specific unresolved issue, problem, or question still facing their everyday lives. They were required to link their self-explorations to the study of society at large through various course and outside readings and films studied in class throughout the semester. Topics were: "The Capitalist Cuckoo’s Nest," "I only Thought I Knew It All: Society and the Individual," "Why Is P Afraid to Love a Woman?," "Teacher Recruitment and Retention: Personal Conflicts, Social Dilemmas," "“Alien Nation,"" "Good Mother/Daughter Hunting: A Process of Self-Healing," "For the Love of Our Many Lives," "Banana or Bridge? How Capitalism Impacts My Racial Identity," "My Asian-American Experience," "Welfare Beyond Teaching: Caring for Children and Their Parents," "The Disabled Welfare Program: The Welfare System and the Disabled," "Inadequate Programs Assisting Mothers in Poverty," "Children: The Unheard Society," and "Ideology and Utopia in Mannheim: Towards the Sociology of Self-Knowledge." Contributors include: R.F.A., Samara Cohen, Peter Dai, P. E. Gracey III, P. Heim, L. Mlecz, S. R., YuhTyng Tsuei, William Wang, Jan Michele Chilion, Erin Syron, Jessica Udice, Aaron Witkowski, and Mohammad H. Tamdgidi (also as journal editor-in-chief). Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge is a publication of OKCIR: The Omar Khayyam Center for Integrative Research in Utopia, Mysticism, and Science (Utopystics).
