A Feast of Words - 2021

The Feast of Words, the CFDE's annual celebration in honor of faculty authors and editors of books, is again taking place online this year.

In a typical year, the Emory Center for Faculty Development and Excellence, Emory Libraries, and the Emory Barnes and Noble Bookstore host an annual event to celebrate the Emory faculty who have written or edited books in the prior year. University leaders attend to offer brief remarks and toast the honorees. This year’s gathering would have been the 18th year of the event. We have celebrated nearly 1900 titles over that time.

In lieu of an in-person gathering this year, the following video celebrates Emory faculty books published in the prior academic year, 2020-21, between September 1, 2020, and August 31, 2021

Congratulations to all the honorees, and thank you for your participation. We hope you enjoy the video!

We have made an effort to identify all books written or edited by Emory faculty that were published between September 1, 2020, and August 31, 2021, but inevitably we miss a few. If you know of a book that should be on this list, please contact Allison Adams (aadam02@emory.edu), so that we may include it on the website. Thank you!
