Journal Article — A Welcoming Statement to the Editorial Advisory Board — by Mohammad H. Tamdgidi
The present issue of Human Architecture includes a collection of excellent undergraduate student essays written in various courses offered at UMass Boston during the 2003-4 academic year. The diversity of issues explored by students in these essays, and the richness of the applied ways in which they critically incorporate theoretical concepts and insights into the fabric of their everyday lives in social context, can hardly be summarized in a short editorial note. So I invite the readers to read these essays forthwith. In many ways, principally because of the courage of these students in exploring the interlinkages of their personal troubles with public issues, but also because of their decisions to share them with others through the public medium of this journal, the present issue of Human Architecture marks another important step towards establishing this journal as a useful academic forum.
