PROFILE
Justin Shaw: Shakespeare scholarship, with a modern twist
Justin Shaw, a PhD student in English, is delving into Shakespeare in new and innovative ways, helping bring revered texts squarely into the digital age. As Emory prepares to welcome Shakespeare's First Folio from Nov. 5 through Dec. 11, Shaw explains what motivates him to study the Bard.

 

PERSPECTIVE
Author shares First Folio history and Folger library founder's obsession
Who buys 82 copies of the same book? If the book is Shakespeare's First Folio, the answer is an obsessed person -- Henry Folger, founder of the Folger Shakespeare Library. Andrea Mays discussed "The Millionaire and the Bard" in a lecture at Emory's Rose Library.

Emory honors the life of student David Kim
Members of the Emory community filled Cannon Chapel on Monday evening to honor the life of Emory College senior David Kim, who passed away Oct. 22.

FAITH
Miles to speak on 'Breaking Bread with a Broken World'
