ENGAGEMENT
'Faith and Politics' students take leadership in new directions
Students who completed Robert Franklin's "Faith and Politics" course last month knew they would get in-depth exposure to how politics and faith interact: They were required to volunteer for a campaign and write about how to heal a divided nation. What most didn't expect was that it would mark a turning point in understanding their call as leaders.

 

LITERATURE
Emory scholar tells immigrant stories through young adult novels
In her new novel, "The Radius of Us," Marie Marquardt, scholar-in-residence at Candler School of Theology, examines the hardships Latin American teens face fleeing gang violence and seeking asylum in the U.S. She reads Thursday at the Barnes & Noble at Emory Bookstore.

 

INSPIRATION
Lipstadt surprises airplane passengers watching 'Denial'
Traveling from London to Seattle, Emory historian Deborah Lipstadt was surprised to discover she was part of the in-flight entertainment, so she introduced herself to passengers watching "Denial," the film about her battle with a Holocaust denier.

 

INNOVATION
University Courses take on challenging, interdisciplinary topics
This semester's University Courses bring together diverse faculty and students from across campus to examine issues surrounding global security and leadership, the ethics of eating and disability and resilience.

 

CREATIVITY
Billops-Hatch exhibit events kick off with artist, scholar Fahamu Pecou
Emory's Rose Library hosts a series of public events supporting "Still Raising Hell: The Art, Activism and Archives of Camille Billops and James V. Hatch." The free events will take place at Emory and in other Atlanta venues.

LEADERSHIP
Presidential inauguration events link Emory's past, present and bold future
Community is at the center of public events planned to celebrate the Feb. 8 inauguration of Emory President Claire E. Sterk as the university's 20th president and first female chief executive.

 

EVENTS
World premiere orchestra performance, archival film tour headline January arts events
The Orpheus Chamber Orchestra visits campus this month to perform the debut of "a canticle of shadows," an elegy for victims of war from Richard Prior, director of performance studies at Emory.

 

RESEARCH
Emory, Morehouse team develops mobile device platform to improve community health
Researchers at Emory and Morehouse School of Medicine are building an ambitious project to work with teens and young adults in minority communities in metro Atlanta to create a health platform supported by mobile devices.

 

RESOURCES
Winship researchers receive Avon Grant
Investigators at the Glenn Family Breast Center at Winship Cancer Institute are the recipients of a one-year, $750,000 grant from the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade Board of Managers.

 

NUTRITION
Emory cardiologist helps rank nation's top diets
Emory cardiologist Laurence Sperling served on a U.S. News & World Report panel appraising some of the country's most popular diets.

PROFILE
