Fall 2019

Dear Reader,

We are thrilled to bring you Volume 5, Issue 1 of The Onyx Review: The Interdisciplinary Research Journal at Agnes Scott College, a peer- and faculty-reviewed journal. This issue’s subjects range from biology to political science.

The Journal Committee at the Center for Writing and Speaking at Agnes Scott College would like to offer many thanks to our director Dr. Mina Ivanova and our coordinator Imani Young Bey for their continued support and guidance in the publication of this journal. We would also like to extend thanks to our current committee members Lauren Church, Siuloong Englander, Gracie Johnson, Alice Mawi, Taelyn Reid, and Connie Tran for their respective contributions that made this volume possible. Of course, this journal would not exist without the authors and submitters, to whom we are grateful. Lastly, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to the many faculty and student reviewers who devoted their valuable time and expertise.

Happy reading!


Alex Fallon and Yuxin Zheng
