LEGACY
Emory alum makes ‘Good Trouble’ with new John Lewis documentary
Alumnus Ben Arnon helped produce one of the summer’s most-anticipated documentaries, "Good Trouble," a celebration of legendary civil rights activist and longtime U.S. Rep. John Lewis, who has deep ties to Emory. The film debuts July 3 on video on demand.

 

CONNECTIONS
From video games to movies, course underlines classical stories playing out on our screens
Elements from ancient Greek and Roman myth and culture abound in today’s movies, comics and other media. “Ancient Worlds, Modern Media” shows students how to look for these references and discern what they represent.

 

RESOURCES
Emory libraries reopen on appointment-only basis effective July 6
Emory libraries will open July 6 for appointment-only, in-person research and services for Emory graduate students and faculty members. Virtual library services remain available to serve the majority of users' needs, with everything from digital downloads to video consultations and online chats.

 

RESEARCH
Inaugural global bidirectional grants awarded at Emory
The university has awarded seven grants to researchers studying ways to improve health outcomes for Atlanta’s at-risk immigrant population. The initiative will harness the expertise of faculty working with underserved populations around the world and bring it to Atlanta.

 

COLLABORATION
New program brings arts and social justice to classes across campus
Through the new Emory Arts and Social Justice Fellows program, Emory students and faculty will collaborate with Atlanta artists this fall to explore racial injustice and other inequities, leading to creative projects intended to spark conversations on campus and in the wider community.

SCIENCE
World Zoonoses Day: 'We have to act now to avoid even bigger catastrophes'
World Zoonoses Day, July 6, spotlights diseases caused by germs that spread between animals and people. “The primary risks for future spillover of zoonotic diseases are deforestation of tropical environments and large-scale industrial farming of animals,” says Emory disease ecologist Thomas Gillespie.
