Learn the art of publishing
Editors from leading journals in economics, political science and sociology will give a workshop on how to get published on Friday, April 17 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in Goizueta Business School, Room 130.

The free, public workshop will be webcast live, so that scholars from around the world can ask the presenters questions. The webcast will later be posted online, for those who are unable to attend the session. Aimed at the development of junior faculty and graduate students, co-sponsors include the Center for Faculty Development and Excellence.

For details on the schedule, and a link to the webcast, visit the Department of Economics Web site: http://www.economics.emory.edu/publish/index.html.

Honoring artist’s 29 years at Emory
Instead of a traditional retirement party, the Visual Arts Department will commemorate Senior Lecturer Katherine Mitchell’s 29 years of service to Emory with a lecture on modern and contemporary painting.

On Tuesday, April 7, at 7:30 p.m. in White Hall 208, Michael Auping, chief curator of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, will present “Unstable Realities: Locating the Image in Post War Painting,” a free public lecture that explores the creative processes of Mitchell’s artistic influences such as Picasso, Bacon, Pollock and Warhol. A reception for Mitchell follows.
