Feast of Words Celebrates Emory Faculty Books Published in 2018

Congratulations to the Emory authors and editors of books published in 2018, celebrated at the annual Feast of Words, held this year on February 11, 2019, in the Jones Room of the Woodruff Library. 

A few facts and figures from this year’s list:

  • This year’s list totals 111 books.
  • A total of 101 individual faculty authors and/or volume editors are represented.
  • Sixteen individual faculty members had multiple titles published in 2018.
  • There are 56 single-author books.
  • There are 15 multi-author books.
  • There are 27 edited volumes.
  • Nine titles on the list are either academic translations of works by others or translations of works by our faculty into other languages.
  • Arts & Sciences faculty are represented on the list 54 times.
  • The School of Medicine faculty are represented 23.
  • The School of Law faculty – 12 times.
  • Candler School of Theology faculty – 18 times.
  • Oxford College faculty – 7 times
  • Rollins School of Public Health faculty twice and the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing faculty once.
  • Emeriti faculty are on the list 8 times.
And we have seven titles that were brought into publication with help from the CFDE’s Scholarly Writing and Publishing Fund, which provides small grants to faculty to hire an editor to help take a manuscript from one stage to the next. This is more than twice the number last year and the year before. Those books are 
  • Kristin Phillips’s An Ethnography of Hunger: Politics, Subsistence, and the Unpredictable Grace of the Sun. 
  • Nichole Phillips’s Patriotism Black and White: The Color of American Exceptionalism.
  • Daniel Reynolds’s Media in Mind.
  • Lawrence Scahill’s two related collaborations, Parent Training for Disruptive Behavior: The RUBI Autism Network and Parent Training for Autism Spectrum Disorder.
  • Maria Franca Sibau’s Reading for the Moral: Exemplarity and the Confucian Moral Imagination in Seventeenth-Century Chinese Short Fiction
  • Mandy Suhr-Sytsma’s Self-Determined Stories: The Indigenous Reinvention of Young Adult Literature
  • The Feast of Words is presented by the Center for Faculty Development and Excellence, together with the Emory University Bookstore and Emory Libraries and Information Technology, and sponsored by the AJC-Decatur Book Festival.
