ACHIEVEMENT
Promising poet: Emory senior wins national writing awards
Christell Victoria Roach, winner of this year's Hurston/Wright Foundation Award for College Writers, finds inspiration for her poetry through research in Emory's extensive archives on African American history and culture.

 

RESEARCH
Your past is calling: Can you ID stone toolmaking 'ring' tones?
Emory anthropologist Dietrich Stout invites you to participate in an online experiment, investigating the human ability to discriminate and interpret the sounds produced by stone toolmaking.

 

TEACHING
Punk is alive and well, thanks to Emory class and Rose archives
The Rose Library's punk collection inspired instructor Joseph Fritsch to offer a "Punk's Not Dead" expository writing class this semester, giving students an opportunity to enhance their writing while learning about punk's history and culture.

 

INNOVATION
No bleeding required: anemia detection via smartphone
Biomedical engineers have developed a smartphone app with the aim of non-invasive detection of anemia. Instead of a blood test, the app uses photos of someone's fingernails taken on a smartphone to determine the level of hemoglobin in their blood.
