Feast of Words virtually celebrates Emory faculty authors and editors
Pablo Palomino

Three Oxford College faculty members were represented at the annual Feast of Words: Devon Goss, David Gowler, and Pablo Palomino.

This annual recognition honored the Emory University faculty authors and editors with books published in the prior year and took place online.

In a typical year, the Emory Center for Faculty Development and Excellence, Emory Libraries, and the Emory Barnes and Noble Bookstore host an annual event to celebrate the Emory faculty who have written or edited books in the prior year. University leaders attend to offer brief remarks and toast the honorees. This year's gathering would have been the 17th year of the event. More than 1,800 titles have been celebrated over that time.

In lieu of an in-person gathering this year, the following video, which went live on February 1, celebrates the authors and editors of books published in 2020 before August 31 (organizers are transitioning to a fall celebration to honor books published in the prior academic year in 2021).

The program celebrates with pre-recorded remarks by Emory University President Gregory L. Fenves, interviews with selected authors about their works (Oxford's Pablo Palomino appears), featured book covers, and the comprehensive list of 2021 faculty authors.

Emory University Faculty Books Published Between January 1 and August 31, 2020

Five of these titles were brought into publication with help from the CFDE's Scholarly Writing and Publishing Fund, which provides small grants to faculty to hire an editor to help take a manuscript from one stage to the next. Those books are noted by an asterisk (*) next to the entry.

Names in boldface indicate Emory faculty in cases of multiple authors or editors.

We have made an effort to identify all books written or edited by Emory faculty that were published between January 1 and August 31, 2020, but inevitably we miss a few. If you know of a book that should be on this list, please contact Allison Adams (, so that we may include it on the website for The Center for Faculty Development and Excellence. Thank you!
