Series offers Emory authors
The Evening with Emory Authors series features a reading and discussion followed by a reception and booksigning by faculty authors.

On Oct. 28 Patricia Bauer, associate dean for research and psychology professor, and Caroline Schaumann, assistant professor in German studies, will read and discuss their work on memory.

Bauer’s book is the first to combine studies of infant autobiographical memory with similar studies conducted with adults. Schaumann’s work juxtaposes literary texts by six contemporary German writers who search for memories in order to reconstruct a family history.

On Nov. 11, Benjamin Reiss, associate professor of English and author of “Theaters of Madness: Insane Asylums and Nineteenth-Century American Culture,” will give a reading and discussion of his book, followed by a booksigning.

Both events are at 5:30 p.m. in the Jones Room of the Woodruff Library. They are sponsored by the Office of the Provost and the Academic Exchange. For more information, call 404-727-5269.

Terrorism exhibit at medical school
A photography exhibit, “Inside Terrorism: The X-ray Project,” that has traveled the country will be Nov. 3–7 at Emory.
