Logos: A Liberal Arts Academic Journal and Manhattan Magazine Now Available Online
Dear Manhattan College Community:
On behalf of the student Editors of Logos: A Liberal Arts Academic Journal and Manhattan Magazine, we are very proud to announce the publication of our Spring 2020 issues. Because of the pandemic, our Editors faced unprecedented challenges in this year's publications, and, like true Jaspers, they managed to produce not only beautiful and professional publications, but publications that prove that even in the face of crisis, Manhattan College students have the grit, intellect, and grace to produce and celebrate the hard work of their peers. While we all adapt to the new world around us, all of us hope that these issues return you to the best kind of normalcy: the academic rigor and creativity of our students and their grace under pressure.
Specifically, we are proud to announce this year's Egan Award Winner in Research: senior English, Philosophy, and Political Science major Alyssa Zduniak for her paper "Monsters Unbound: Identifying the Monstrous Body and Its Resistance to Containment in Walsingham, Sardanapalus, and Frankenstein."
We are also proud to announce the winners of our First Year Composition Emmerson Awards. In the Personal Narrative category: Zoe Fintz for her essay "Redecorating." For Critical Analysis: Kayla Szczerba for her essay "Why We Need to Laugh at Straight White Men." And in the Research category: Emily Hollar for her essay "Who Hears the Baby Crying? Not Mom: Why the US Needs Paid Family Leave."
Manhattan Magazine’s Creative Writing Egan awards this year go to Madeline Hurwitz for her poem, “My Father in the Basement of a Church,” Autumn Herndon for her short story “Little Monsters,” and Emily Hay for her nonfiction piece, “‘It was probably the only way she could have sex, anyway.’”. The Visual Arts Award for 2020 is awarded to Raashi Dev for her photograph, “Camouflage.”
Please join all of us in celebrating this extraordinary work—ranging from First Year students to Seniors—and in further expressing the true Jasper pride of a job well done, even in the face of global challenges. Many, many thanks also go out to the Office of Student Engagement for always supporting the publication and distribution of both journals.
