HONORS
Emory PhD candidate Sumita Chakraborty wins prestigious award for young poets
For the second time in five years, an Emory graduate student has won the Ruth Lilly and Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Poetry Fellowship, one of the top honors offered to young poets in the United States.

 

LEADERSHIP
Emory reaffirms support for DACA students
In the wake of the Trump administration's decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, Emory's commitment to our students remains steadfast. In concert with our peer institutions, Emory is working diligently to advocate for a swift bipartisan solution.

 

COURTS
Event Canceled: Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor to participate in discussion at Emory Law
Sonia Sotomayor, associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, will participate in a discussion with Emory Law professor Fred Smith at an event for the law school community on Wednesday, Sept. 13.

 

COMMUNITY
'Emory 21 Days of Peace' promotes building peace locally, globally
For the next three weeks, the Emory community is invited to engage in a social media campaign and events promoting peace, both at home and around the world.

 

HEALTH
Cancer and HIV: Closing the screening gap
Emory professors Theresa Gillespie and Jessica Wells want to determine why HIV/AIDS patients are not routinely screened for cancer and other diseases.

 

RESEARCH
Unplanned Fox News viewing influences likelihood of voting for Republican presidential candidates
Voters who stumble across Fox News first in their cable news channel lineup are more likely to vote for a Republican presidential candidate, according to a new study in the American Economic Review. Watching CNN or MSNBC, however, did not have a similar effect.

 

ART

"Threads of Time: Tradition and Change in Indigenous American Textiles," now on display at the Michael C. Carlos Museum, examines cultures in Central and South America through clothing and fiber objects of many kinds.

September arts events include music, painting, poetry
Arts at Emory welcomes the community back to campus this month with a wide range of events, including two performances by the Vega String Quartet, Emory's acclaimed quartet in residence.
