Emory’s Arts and Social Justice (ASJ) Fellows Program enters its third year of programming, welcoming 11 Atlanta-based artists to classes across the university this fall. Each fellow is paired with an Emory faculty member from across the university, including teachers from Emory College of Arts and Sciences, Goizueta Business School and Oxford College. The artists work with their faculty partners to reimagine an existing course, injecting a creative approach to addressing social justice issues that surface within class conversations. Two Biology faculty members (Eladio Abreu and Micaela Martinez) have been paired with artists.
The artists, faculty, and students will reveal the results of their fall semester work on Tuesday, Dec. 6, at the Switchyards Downtown Club. The exhibition will be free and open to the public.
