TRADITION
Get ready for your close-up at Dooley's Week events
First there was Hollywood, then Bollywood, and now "Dooleywood" -- at least next week. Dooley's Week celebrates the movies with a packed schedule of events featuring The Chainsmokers, DJ Khaled, comedian Pete Holmes, and of course, Emory's skeletal Lord of Misrule.

 

FIRST PERSON
Emory's Trump chalkings in context
Chalked endorsements normally would not cause anyone to blink an eye, but a particular set of circumstances created a flash point, writes Ajay Nair, senior vice president and dean of Campus Life.

 

INSPIRATION
Eyes on a prize: The courageous life of John Lewis
"You are never too old or too young to be involved in seeking justice," U.S. Rep. John Lewis told a capacity crowd at Emory Law for a screening of "Get in the Way," the new film about his lifetime of civil rights activism.

 

THANK YOU
Block party celebrates Wagners' contributions to Emory
The Emory community is invited to a block party on Thursday, April 21, to thank Emory President James Wagner and his wife, Debbie, for their service to the University. The lunch gathering in Asbury Circle features music, food and more.

 

ENGAGEMENT
Emory Scholars bring back lessons from Hult Prize competition
The Emory Scholars who returned last week from China after competing in the regional round of the Hult Prize may not have won, but they did not come back empty-handed. Now with valuable networking contacts, they remain committed to global impact.

 

EVENTS
April arts events include new show from the Emory Dance Company
Arts at Emory welcomes spring with a full slate of events, from dance and theater to the return of the popular outdoor concert series, Jazz on the Green.

 

RESEARCH
Conspicuous consumption may drive down fertility
Competition for social status may be an important driver of lower fertility in the modern world, suggests a new study co-authored by Emory anthropologist Paul Hooper.

 

INNOVATION
Ecocriticism offers interdisciplinary look at literature, environment
Emory is at the forefront of an emerging field that examines, through literature, how people relate to the environment and are in turn shaped by it.

 

CREATIVITY
'Pre-Texts' learning method uses art to engage complex texts
For a course on the U.S.-Mexican War, professor Vialla Hartfield- Méndez had students read articles written in English and Spanish, then cut them apart to create a new narrative. Emory faculty and students can learn more about the method at events this week.

PROFILE
Alisha Bhimani: Finding her calling as a nurse through study abroad
As a non-native English speaker, Alisha Bhimani is acutely aware of disparities in health care, especially around language. Trips to Honduras and Italy strengthened her resolve to become a patient-centered health care provider.

As Emory celebrated Tibet Week, monks spent hours each day crafting a sand mandala. The meticulous creations are often destroyed once completed to symbolize the impermanence of life, but this mandala will remain on display in the Michael C. Carlos Museum throughout the "Doorway to an Enlightened World" exhibit. See more photos.

April is Earth Month, but Emory got an early start at the Earth Month Festival on Tuesday, March 29, with activities ranging from baking s'mores in a solar-powered oven to making smoothies in a bike-powered blender. View more photos and the full Earth Month calendar.

Wonderful Wednesday

Sunny skies greeted attendees at Wonderful Wednesday festivities March 30. The tradition harkens back to when Emory didn't have classes on Wednesday. While the mid-week break lasted only from 1967 to 1982, Wonderful Wednesday was revived in 2006 as a student-led weekly gathering featuring activities from a variety of groups.

Quote

 

"We certainly need more characters like this in our neighborhoods and in our homes, too, since it seems that, whether in the public square or the private sphere, we have become all too comfortable with the scandals, impoliteness, inhumanity and downright triviality that rule the day."
Brent A. Strawn, Huffington Post, March 25, 2016
