Salman Rushdie


Spring semester will bring University Distinguished Professor Salman Rushdie to campus for "A Conversation on the Liberal Arts" on Thursday, March 1 at 4 p.m. in the Jones Room of Woodruff Library.

Among Rushdie's other activities will be participation in "Metaphors and the Mind," a daylong symposium Thursday, March 8 in Cox Hall Ballroom. Rushdie and two other innovative Emory writers, Jim Grimsley and Joseph Skibell, will read from their works and exchange ideas with three leading neuroscientists, Anjan Chatterjee, Seana Coulson and David Kemmerer, who do cutting edge research on language and will present recent findings on relevant brain mechanisms.
