Since 1981, Emory has held the Last Lecture Series. Each year students nominate four faculty members to address an audience of students and other faculty as if they were giving their last lecture to undergraduates. These lectures continue to be met with enthusiasm and awe. Last Lecture is held on Wednesdays during the fall semester and, if you’re on campus, we encourage you to attend and become a part of this long-standing Emory tradition.
Examples of Last Lecture topics from this past year are:
“Bedtime Stories” (the importance of storytelling in any culture)
“The Anthropology of Happiness” (nonpharmaceutical interventions of mental health and happiness)
