We would like to extend our congratulations to the brilliant writers of the 2020 third edition of the Muhlenberg Academic Review (MAR)! MAR is Muhlenberg College’s Interdisciplinary Academic Journal, which showcases the wide range of insightful student writing occurring across our campus. These papers have undergone a highly selective process involving the instrumental help of our faculty-recommended contributing editors and copy editors; each paper was read by three separate readers, two in the same discipline as the paper, and one “reader-at-large,” a reader outside the discipline, and then copy edited. We want to honor the 13 students whose papers were selected out of 60 total submissions through a video acknowledgement by our co-editors-in-chief.
Thank you to our large team of contributing editors and copy editors for helping us make such difficult choices, and lending your time and energy to our journal. We also want to thank our fabulous board members, our faculty sponsor, Linda Miller, and Kathy Harring and the Provost’s Office for their generous support.
Congratulations to the 13 writers whose work has made the curation of MAR’s 3rd edition such an honor.
Alex Franchino and Kieva Mark, Co-Editors-in-Chief
