Two professors awarded Fulbrights
Two Emory faculty members, Edna Bay of the Institute for Liberal Arts and Don Stein of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, have been awarded 2000–01 Fulbright scholar grants to conduct international research.

Bay is an associate professor whose teaching and research interests are African and Caribbean culture and history, women’s history, women and development, and art and material culture. Her Fulbright grant is for lecturing and research at the University of the West Indies in Mona, Jamaica, on gender in Africa and the cultures of post-emancipation African immigrants to 19th-century Jamaica.

Stein is the Asa G. Candler Professor of Psychology and Emergency Medicine, whose teaching and research are on brain repair. His Fulbright is for research on the molecular biology of progesterone and its relation to recovery after brain damage.

The recipient of a number of Fulbright scholar and awards for travel and research in France, Stein has studied at the Universite Claude Bernard in Lyon, the Universite Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg, and the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes in Paris.

Wong awarded Mozart society prize
Janice Wong, a new artist-affiliate teacher of piano in the music department, has won a $4,000 Pro-Mozart Society scholarship to study this summer at the Mozart-eum in Salzburg, Austria, this coming summer.


Bookstore manager honored
John Black, manager of the bookstore at Candler School of Theology, has been honored by the Cokesbury Bookstore Division of the United Methodist Publishing House as academic store supervisor of the year. Cokesbury presented the award in February at its annual gathering of academic store managers and regional sales people in Nashville, Tenn.

Academic store supervisor honors are presented on the basis of an annual evaluation which includes financial performance, inventory management and administrative skills. Black has been at the Cokesbury-owned store at Candler for two years.
