Department News & Congratulations
- The department is sad to announce the passing of Nick Fotion, Professor Emeritus. Born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, he received his Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina in 1957, following undergraduate and masters work in psychology. Professor Fotion was a specialist in ethics, including military ethics, and was the author, co-author, or editor of twelve books and numerous articles. Professor Fotion came to Emory in 1970, retiring in 2017. His teaching and writing touched the lives of many students and colleagues, both at Emory and abroad, where he and his work were widely known and discussed, particularly in Korea, which he twice visited as a Fulbright Lecturer. In his passing, we remember and celebrate a teacher and scholar who gave Emory 47 years of his life. Goodbye Nick.
- Professor Cynthia Willett's new book Uproarious: How Feminists and Other Subversive Comics Speak Truth is digitally accessible for free here. She has also spoken recently about the book in several interviews, like this Q&A with the co-author for Authors Alliance, and this feature on Rising Up with Sonali.
- For the spring of 2020, Professor George Yancy is the University of Pennsylvania's Inaugural Fellow in the Provost's Distinguished Faculty Fellowship Program.
