Honors for the Carlos Museum, Dudziak, Noel and Trumbower

Emory Report | Aug. 4, 2015

The Michael C. Carlos Museum has earned reaccreditation to meet American Alliance of Museum’s National Standards and Best Practices.

The rigorous process of self-assessment and peer review helps to ensure the integrity and accessibility of museum collections, reinforce the education and public service roles of museums and promote good governance practices and ethical behavior.

Developed and sustained by museum professionals for more than 40 years, the museum accreditation program is a primary vehicle for quality assurance, self-regulation and public accountability.

Mary L. Dudziak has been appointed the next Kluge Chair in American Law and Governance at the Library of the Congress’ John W. Kluge Center, Librarian of Congress James H. Billington has announced.

Dudziak is the Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Law and director of the Project on War and Security in Law, Culture and Society at Emory.

Dudziak’s appointment began Aug. 1. She will spend five months in residence using the Library’s collections and resources to research and write her forthcoming book, "Going to War: An American History." Her expertise is in constitutional law, legal history, diplomatic history and civil rights history

Laura Noel has been selected as the 2014-15 recipient of the Atlanta Photography Group/High Museum of Art Purchase Award.

Noel is an instructor in the Department of Media and Film Studies in Emory College of Arts and Sciences.

Noel was chosen by Brett Abbott, Keough Family Curator of Photography and Head of Collections of the High Museum of Art.  

The winning photographs, acquired by the High for its collection, are from Noel’s “Smoke Break” series, in which she documents the attitudes of those who continue to smoke in the face of society’s widespread disapproval of the habit. The individuals are photographed in moments of contemplation, either briefly escaping from a workplace to smoke or relaxing with a cigarette within the comfort of their own homes and yards.

Randy Dale Trumbower received the American Physical Therapy Association’s Eugene Michels New Investigator Award.

Trumbower is assistant professor of physical therapy in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine’s Division of Physical Therapy.

The Eugene Michels New Investigator Award honors individuals who have engaged in outstanding independent research activities within 10 years of completion of formal physical therapy education.
