DirectorMessage from the Director

We had a great start for our Lunch Colloquium series with a capacity crowd and an outstanding talk by Mel Konner. Thanks to Deborah Ayer for her write up of Mel's talk; if you weren't able to attend you can find some of what you missed by reading her article. Next week will be completely different, with an excursion to Oxford College to hear about and see (if you would like) their award-winning organic farm. We will be guests of Dean Bowen for lunch. We are arranging carpools--please read the information about carpooling. The next week we hear from another of our distinguished faculty members: Woodruff Professor Martha Fineman. At the end of the month, our Membership and Development Committee is presenting a retirement seminar on various financial issues that will be of interest to most of us.
We will be webcasting these events. It has been a learning experience in doing these webcasts, and finding new things that can go wrong each time! I hope our next webcast from Oxford will be much better; thanks to those of you who are participating in this adventure.
There is too much else in this issue to mention here. It is with sadness that we mark the passing of one of our founding members, Jim Hund. Many of you were fortunate enough to know him and of his legacy to Emory and Atlanta.

I am very grateful to Herb Benario, John Bugge, and Gretchen Schulz for help with proofing and editing.

OxLCBotOctober 12 Lunch Colloquium

A REAL FIELD TRIP: Life, Work, and Learning Down on the Oxford Farm

Award-winning organic farmer and experienced farm educator Daniel Parson will report on the challenges and achievements of his efforts as Director of Oxford's new College Farm. He will discuss progress made thus far in managing big crop yields (that both locals and Atlanta-area people can enjoy) and even bigger learning experiences for the Oxford faculty, staff, and students who opt for curricular and extra-curricular involvement. After the lunchtime presentation, Daniel will take all interested parties on a brief tour of the Farm property (located just adjacent to the College campus itself). If you plan to take the tour, do wear appropriate footwear. And if rain gear might be needed, please bring it along..

Why a farm at Oxford?  Is there any hope for success at such a farm?

Both of the above questions are answered in an Emory news item from September 30:

Farm one of Top 30 Sustainable College-Run Farms
September 30, 2015

The Oxford College Organic Farm has been named one of the Top 30 Sustainable College-Run Farms, a ranking recently released by College Values Online (CVO), which considered a total pool of 100 farms.  Calling college farms "no longer just research sites, but...centers of student solidarity and community nutrition," CVO ranked each farm based on qualities such as total size, organic certification, sales to campus dining halls, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) offerings, academic courses, and sales to off-campus venues.
Oxford was ranked seventeenth out of the 30 colleges selected. "It has always been our goal that the farm bring together sustainability, education, and positive impact on the local community," says Stephen Bowen, dean of Oxford College.  "It is gratifying to have our efforts recognized nationally."
The organic farm began operation in 2014 on land donated by Trulock Dickson 72 Ox 74C, who bought it from Marshall and Fran Elizer, beloved figures at Oxford College who served for many years as administrator and library assistant, respectively.  The scale of the property--just over 11 acres--and the location--700 feet from Oxford's campus--were ideal for a college farm.
The operation is led by organic farmer/educator Daniel Parson, who was selected for the role in 2013, following a national search. Parson brought 15 years of experience in organic farming. He earned both a bachelor's degree in biological sciences and a master's degree in plant and environmental science from Clemson University.  His prior recognition includes both the Georgia Organics Land Steward of the Year Award and inclusion on the Mother Nature Network's 40 Farmers Under 40 list.
Parson is seen each Tuesday at the Emory Farmers Market, and students at Oxford regularly dine on produce from the farm in the College dining hall.  The CSA has participants from the College and surrounding Newton County community, who rapidly fill each subscription sign-up. The farm has been smoothly incorporated into Oxford's curriculum, and not just in biology and environmental science.  Courses in philosophy, economics, and sociology also make use of lessons provided by the farm. Including the dozen or so students who are assigned there through work/study, nearly 150 students spend at least some time on the farm each week.
Says Ciannat Howett, Emory director of sustainability initiatives, "To have only opened in 2014 and already achieved this ranking is remarkable. Because criteria for the ranking relate to selling to campus dining halls and other outlets such as the farmer's market, it is also a testament to David Fuhrman and the Emory Dining team's supportive leadership and vision.
The complete list of 30 farms selected can be seen on College Value Online.

Logistics for the excursion to Oxford

We will be eating in the Dean's Dining Room, which is located to the rear of Lil's Dining Hall.  Directions to Oxford and places to park close to the site will be provided to those who register.

Monday, October 12 is during Oxford's fall break; therefore, there will be fewer students, faculty, and cars on campus so it should be a relaxed time to visit!

Carpooling to Oxford:  We will plan on having carpools leaving from the Luce Center at 10:15 on Monday.  If you are willing to drive, or if you would like a ride, please contact the EUEC office at so we will know there are enough carpool spaces for everyone.  Alternatively, if you will be driving to the Oxford Campus from a different location and would be willing to take passengers, please let us know and we will advertise those alternative options as well.

MFLCBotOctober 19 Lunch Colloquium

Social Justice and the Vulnerable Subject
Martha Albertson Fineman, Robert W. Woodruff Professor of Law

Prevalent political rhetoric imagines a liberal, liberty-seeking legal or constitutional subject, spawning mantras of "individual choice" and "personal responsibility" and generating suspicion of state activity or intervention.  By contrast, a vulnerability analysis constructs a more comprehensive and complicated vision of political or legal subjectivity, one that makes it clear that achieving social justice in the 21st century will require a more active and responsive state than we have currently. After all, as Martha Fineman will explain to us, vulnerability is the primal human condition. As embodied beings, we are universally and individually constantly susceptible to injury, harm, and dependency over the life-course. The inevitability of vulnerability means that there is no position of invulnerability; there is only the possibility of resilience. And, significantly, we are not born resilient.  Rather, we gain the resources that give us resilience over time and within and through social institutions and relationships. We are inescapably embedded in society--and dependent upon it--in our weaknesses and for our strengths. If the ideal of social justice is to be achieved, it is important that the institutions that shape the rules, the very laws by which we live, be responsive to our needs, given the vulnerability and dependency that are universal and inherent in the human condition. 

From her Faculty Profile:
Martha Albertson Fineman is a Robert W. Woodruff Professor. An internationally recognized law and society scholar, Fineman is a leading authority on family law and feminist jurisprudence. Following graduation from University of Chicago Law School in 1975, she clerked for the Hon. Luther M. Swygert of the US Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Fineman began her teaching career at the University of Wisconsin in 1976. In 1990, she moved to Columbia University where she was the Maurice T. Moore Professor. Before coming to Emory, she was on the Cornell Law School faculty where she held the Dorothea Clarke Professorship, the first endowed chair in the nation in feminist jurisprudence.

Fineman is founder and director of the Feminism and Legal Theory (FLT) Project, which was inaugurated in 1984. In 2010, the 25th anniversary edition of Transcending the Boundaries of Law: Generations of Feminism and Legal Theory was published. Two other recent collections from the FLT Project edited by Fineman are: What Is Right for Children? The Competing Paradigms Religion and International Human Rights (with Worthington) and Feminist and Queer Legal Theories: Intimate Encounters, Uncomfortable Conversation (with Jackson and Romero), both published by Ashgate Press in 2009. Fineman also serves as director of Emory's Vulnerability and the Human Condition Initiative.

Her scholarly interests are the legal regulation of family and intimacy and the legal implications of universal dependency and vulnerability. Fineman's solely authored publications include books-The Autonomy Myth: A Theory of Dependency, The New Press (2004); The Neutered Mother, and The Sexual Family and other Twentieth Century Tragedies, Routledge Press (1995); and The Illusion of Equality: The Rhetoric and Reality of Divorce Reform (1991)--in addition to dozens of journal articles and essays. Her essay in the Yale Journal of Law and Feminism, "The Vulnerable Subject: Anchoring Equality in the Human Condition," formed the basis of Vulnerability: Reflections on a New Ethical Foundation for Law and Politics, published by Princeton University Press in 2013.

Fineman has received awards for her writing and teaching, including the prestigious Harry Kalvin Prize for her work in the law and society tradition. She has served on several government study commissions. She teaches courses and seminars on family law, feminist jurisprudence, law and sexuality, and reproductive issues.

LCBotSeptember 21 Lunch Colloquium 

Women After All: Sex, Evolution, and the End of Male Supremacy

In his provocative analysis of the origins of sexual differences and their implications for the 21st century, Mel Konner gives new meaning to an old saying: "Biology is destiny" signals women's strengths rather than their limited options. Because sexual difference is rooted in biology (not culture) and women are biologically superior, they are better equipped than men to carry out the business of today's world. Women excel as managers: Organized, focused, and farseeing, they juggle competing tasks while remaining calm and in control. Women are also more deliberate and constructive than men, who become distracted by inappropriate sex or unnecessary violence. Sex scandals, financial corruption, and violence almost exclusively involve males!
Evidence of women's biological superiority abounds: In spite of playing its key sex-determining role, the male Y chromosome is tiny in comparison to the female X, and differences in male and female brains suggest that females are far better adapted to lead. Because males possess a larger amygdala which testosterone activates early in embryonic life and which continues to feed their aggressive impulses, men greatly exceed women in violence and driven sexuality. In females, however, the frontal cortex, which regulates the amygdala, is more active, reducing the effect of testosterone, and making them less violent.
That male domination is no more "natural" than female domination is evident in the wide range of gender behaviors, sexual divisions of labor, and reproductive strategies exhibited by species ranging from birds to primates. The female cassowary towers over her smaller mate, who appears almost dainty; the male is also the sole caregiver during the first nine months of their babies' life while females, who are fiercer fighters, sleep around, and function as breeders who improve the species through their choice of mates. Primates also offer an array of violent and adaptive reproductive strategies. Among the Langurs of Abu, outsider males invade and kill all the new babies so that females will come into heat and mate with them, while chimpanzee males exhibit similar violent behavior, asserting their dominance through assaults and killing. More desirable role models for humans are the Bonobos in the Congo who are highly social and less aggressive; females form coalitions with other females, and both male and female bonobos have more sex and less violence than Langurs or Chimps.
Rather than marking human progress, the past 10,000 years of male domination have set civilization back. Comparing the effects of two different social organizations on human productivity, harmony, and realization of potential reveals that the older society of hunter-gatherers (dating back at least 100,000 years) was far more adaptive than more recent agricultural societies. During most of human existence, hunter-gatherer cultures were nomadic bands of about thirty members in which everything that happened involved everyone; although males might have tried to dominate, women occupied a strong position and their voices were heard. In contrast, agricultural societies experienced more male domination and more violence: As men's groups expanded to the point at which women could be excluded, men controlled public space. Increased organized violence further enhanced male dominance resulting in the almost continual warfare of the past several centuries.
Recognizing the pathology of the past and acknowledging the biological roots of sexual difference makes possible a happier, more adaptive future in which women and men are equally free to fulfill their potential. If Mel Konner is right that empowering women is the next step in human evolution, then women's recent rise to positions of power in government, the professions, and corporate and academic worlds means we are well on our way.
--Deborah Ayer

The campus bookstore had copies of Mel's book for sale and he signed those as well as copies that members had already bought.  A great start to our fall Lunch Colloquiums!


FacAcBotFaculty Activities
Don E. Saliers 
Wm. R. Cannon Distinguished Prof. of Theology and Liturgy, Emeritus

EUEC Member and Executive Committee member Don Saliers has had a busy summer and fall.

He taught a three-week course at Sewanee in their School of Theology, then a music course at Saint John's Abbey in Collegeville, MN.  After that, he was part of the liturgical choir at the international meeting of Societas Liturgica in Quebec City.  Yet to come, he
will be teaching in a "life-long" learning situation at a retreat center near Jackson, MS, and heading a Hymn Festival at a church at Clemson.  He will also be sharing some of his more recent poetry with us in the final Lunch Colloquium of the fall, a Poetry Mash-up and Holiday Party combined, on December 7.

Emory PhD student Tony Alonso is considered among the nation's most prominent and prolific voices in the realm of contemporary liturgical music. To date, he's published about 200 liturgical songs, which appear in musical collections and hymnals worldwide (Emory news). Alonso is a graduate student of Don Saliers and  says that "he was drawn to Emory for doctoral studies primarily for "the opportunity to study with (theologian-in-residence) Professor Don Saliers, who though retired, was willing to take me on as a student - along with the benefits of working with an overall stellar faculty." If that is not remarkable enough, the particular interest in Alonso as a composer is that he was asked to compose liturgical music for the mass to canonize Junipero Serra that was conducted by Pope Francis while he was in Washington, DC!  The complete story by the Emory news service can be read by clicking here or viewing the article on the Emory news site

EUEC Member Bill Carney was given special faculty recognition by the Law School in a program on Friday, September 25.  Bill led the committee that developed the Center for Transactional Law and Practice in 2007 and hired its first director. He and his wife, Jane, recently donated a $1 million challenge grant to help the Center hire an assistant director and to enhance both its experiential programs and academic offerings.  The full article on the Law program can be read by clicking here, or seen on the Emory news website.


Eugene C. Bianchi
Professor of Religion, Emeritus

EUEC Member Gene Bianchi will be doing a poetry reading from his recent book, Chewing Down My Barn: Poems from the Carpenter Bees in the Barnes & Noble campus bookstore on Thursday, Oct. 22 at 4 p.m.

There is visitor parking under the bookstore off Oxford St. The event will be in the open textbook center.  Gene will offer the signed book at a special price of $10.

More information about the book, as well as other writings by Gene can be found at his website:

EUEC members will have another chance to enjoy some of Gene's poetry at the final Lunch Colloquium of the fall, when he will join colleagues and fellow poets Don Saliers and Trudy Kretchman in the Poetry Mash-up and Holiday Party combined that we have scheduled on December 7.

Brigitte ("Bee") Buchmann Nahmias, M.D.

EUEC Member Bee Nahmias is writing a memoir about growing up in Germany during WWII. The working title is: Shrapnel in the Piano--How Our Family Lived in Germany Before, During and After WWII.  The book is based largely on a treasure trove of six boxes of documents, letters, photo albums and diaries she found after her parents died. So this is truly a prime source of information about the impact of history on a civilian family during those terrible times.  Her final text draft is ready and she would be happy to email it to anyone interested in reading it.  She would also be grateful for any comments or suggestions.

FluBotFlu Vaccinations

What You Should Know and Do this Flu Season If You Are 65 Years and Older
It has been recognized for many years that people 65 years and older are at greater risk of serious complications from the flu compared with young, healthy adults because human immune defenses become weaker with age. While flu seasons can vary in severity, during most seasons, people 65 years and older bear the greatest burden of severe flu disease. In recent years, for example, it's estimated that between 80 percent and 90 percent of seasonal flu-related deaths have occurred in people 65 years and older and between 50 percent and 70 percent of seasonal flu-related hospitalizations have occurred among people in that age group. So influenza is often quite serious for people 65 and older.

Actions To Take This Flu Season: Get Your Flu Shot

The best way to prevent the flu is with a flu vaccine. CDC recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older get a seasonal flu vaccine each year soon after it becomes available, and by October if possible. Vaccination is especially important for people 65 years and older because they are at high risk for complications from flu. Flu vaccines are often updated to keep up with changing viruses and also immunity wanes over a year so annual vaccination is needed to ensure the best possible protection against influenza.

People 65 years and older have two flu shots available to choose from - a regular dose flu vaccine and a newer flu vaccine designed specifically for people 65 and older with a higher dose. (The nasal spray vaccine is not approved for use in people older than 49 years.) The "high dose vaccine" contains 4 times the amount of antigen as the regular flu shot and is associated with a stronger immune response following vaccination (higher antibody production). Preliminary studies suggest this may translate into greater protection against flu disease. For example, one recent study published in The New England Journal of Medicine indicated that the high-dose vaccine was 24.2% more effective in preventing flu in adults 65 years and older relative to a standard-dose flu vaccine. (The confidence interval for this result was 9.7% to 36.5%). At this time, CDC and its Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices have not expressed a preference for either vaccine for people 65 and older; however, there are ongoing studies looking into this issue and new findings will be considered in ACIP's future policy deliberations.

IMBotEUEC Founding Member Jim Hund

James Madden HUND (1922 - 2015)

James Madden (Jim) Hund, born April 27, 1922, in Detroit, Michigan, died September 13, 2015. He was emeritus professor of management and former dean of the Emory University School of Business, now the Goizueta Business School. The son of the late Henry E. and Emma Madden Hund, he graduated from Detroit University School (now University Ligett). A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Amherst College, he joined the U.S. Navy in 1943, serving in the South Pacific and continuing in the Naval Reserve until 1961. After the war, he worked for Reo Motors in Lansing, Michigan, before entering Princeton University, earning his doctorate in economics in 1954.

Dr. Hund taught for three years at Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts, before arriving at Emory in 1957 where he taught and was dean (65-68) until his retirement in 1987. In 2001, he received the Goizueta Business School Lifetime Achievement Award. Especially passionate about music, he was a Life Director of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and an active supporter and former board member of the Friends of Music of Emory University and the Georgia Chamber Players. In 2012 he received the Arts Volunteer Award from the Emory College Center for Creativity in the Arts. Dr. Hund was also a board member of the Care and Counseling Center of Georgia (CCCG). A volunteer for 21 years with Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, he was the 2012 Volunteer of the Year, Children's Healthcare, Egleston.

Physically active until very recent years, he was an inveterate traveler and enjoyed bicycle trips in Europe, skiing, and tennis. Dr. Hund was a devoted member of Glenn Memorial United Methodist Church since 1958, serving in various leadership positions over many years. He was also a member of the Druid Hills Golf Club. A consummate gentleman, Dr. Hund was a loving husband, father and grandfather, a loyal friend, and a professor who enjoyed teaching and remained in touch with many of his former students. Dr. Hund was predeceased by his first wife, Nancy Black Hund, in 1967. He is survived by his wife of 46 years, Barbara McKnight Hund; daughters, Marcia Hund (husband, Joel Cotton) and Gretchen Hund (husband, Ted Andrews); stepson, Stewart R. Roberts, III; stepdaughter, Elaine Roberts (husband, Allison Bailes); five grandchildren; five nieces; and brother-in-law, James N. McKnight. The family will receive friends on Friday, September 18, 6-8 PM at A.S. Turner & Sons, 2773 N Decatur Road, Decatur, GA 30033. A memorial service celebrating his life will be held on Saturday, September 19, 2 PM at Glenn Memorial United Methodist Church with reception following at Emory's Carlos Museum.

Those desiring may send a contribution in his memory to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, 1280 Peachtree St, NE, Atlanta 30309; the Goizueta Business School at Emory University, 1300 Clifton Rd, Atlanta 30322; or the Methodist Children's Home, 500 S Columbia Dr, Decatur 30030.

Hello again everyone!

The photo from the September 14 Issue is of course, Dooley! 

The statue can be found on the main campus just off Asbury Circle between Cox Hall and Dobbs University Center (the DUC).  I'm sure most, if not all of you, have seen it (him).  If not, take a stroll and give Dooley a visit. 

Please walk with me again!  This time we'll find places to sit, maybe relax, and enjoy the beauty of Emory ...
