Letter from the EICs
BY JASMINE WU '22 & REBECCA ZHANG '22
Oh, fall—the time of pumpkin spice, cardigans, and… an insurmountable pile of leaves to rake. With all the chaos of the past years, New England autumn is the only constant in our life (well, if you’re not considering global warming…), and we’re here for it.
We’ve been craving consistency and normalcy since the pandemic began, but what are we really returning to? From the normalization of hate crimes to unattainable beauty standards, these themes are explored in this issue’s articles. Norms, normalization, normalcy, however you phrase it: all encompass the rhythm of life we’ve unconsciously settled for.
So as we settle into fall’s comforting embrace, remember that normalcy can be redefined. And so, if you’re looking for a change in your normal, join us here at The Spectrum every Thursday in 152 W :) (Sorry, couldn’t help the plug!)
Happy fall y’all,
Jasmine and Rebecca
