Alumni Arts Review

This magazine article is part of Fall 2019 / Issue 94

The writing and art on the following pages originally appeared in “Swing,” Volume VIII of the F&M Alumni Arts Review. Edited by Sands Hall, the F&M Alumni Arts Review is a printed publication, with a web presence (go.fandm.edu/aar), that presents literary and visual works by Franklin & Marshall alumni. It’s an “arts” review for a reason: F&M is proud that, as a College, it continues the fine tradition of a classic liberal arts education. The word “arts” in this case does not just mean the fine arts, or the literary arts; rather, it refers to educational disciplines that are considered essential if one is to be an effective citizen of the world. These include the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences.

The theme of Volume IX is “Bound,” which, in addition to “walking or running with leaping steps,” offers all kinds of matters for exploration, including the idea of boundaries (“out of bounds”), as well as the idea of heading somewhere (“bound for glory”). Submissions are now open, with a deadline of Nov. 15. To learn more about how to submit, or to ask questions, visit go.fandm.edu/aar.
