“Grounded Cognition,” a paper by Lawrence W. Barsalou, Samuel Candler Dobbs Professor of Psychology, was named a “fast-breaking paper” by Science Watch, due to its high number of citations.
Barsalou was also interviewed in June by Science Watch, which is produced by Thomson Reuters News Service.

Erica Endicott’s catalog redesign and style guide for the Emory Center for Lifelong Learning won a Gold award from the University Continuing Education Association for “Most Improved,” one of several awards earned by the CLL.

Endicott is a graphic designer with the Emory Creative Group.

James Meyer, associate professor of art history, has been appointed senior fellow by the Smithsonian American Art Museum for the 2009–2010 academic year. The museum’s program grants awards for scholars and students to pursue research at the museum, including senior, predoctoral and postdoctoral fellowships.
Meyer received the appointment for his “The Return of the 1960s: Narratives of the Contemporary.”

Raymond Schinazi, Frances Winship Walters Professor of Pediatrics among other appointments, became the first University of Bath (UK)alumnus to join the Chancellor’s Roll of Honour there.

The award was made in recognition of Schinazi’s “leadership, his passion for Bath and its academic research, and his generosity in supporting the University philanthropically.”

Funding the Schinazi International Exchange Programme, Schinazi’s gift of $550,000 is enabling two researchers each from Bath and Emory to study at the other’s organization.
