Clamor is a venue for public expression and creative practice, as our name implies. In light of current events, we decided to showcase works that reflect opinions and identities representing the concerns of our community. While not everyone will agree with the ideas presented in these works, we chose pieces that resonated with us. As a student-led publication, our decisions were not made solely based on the content of these works, but on their engagement with their materials.
