Ai Atlanta Librarian Awarded Fellowship from Harvard University
April 3, 2018
Robert M. Sarwark, AM, MLIS, Librarian at The Art Institute of Atlanta, has been selected by Harvard University’s Houghton Library as a Houghton Mifflin Fellow.
As part of the Houghton Mifflin Fellowship in Publishing History, Robert will work on a project titled “Bibliography of the Damned: A Book-by-Book Journey through the Index Librorum Prohibitorum [Index of Prohibited Books].” The project will investigate the practice of institutional censorship and book banning in the context of world history and the Catholic Church.
For this visiting fellowship, Robert is receiving a stipend to spend four weeks on campus with access to the Houghton Library, Harvard University’s main rare book and manuscript collection. The Houghton Library contains several rare titles included on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum that are not available anywhere else in North America, making this fellowship a great fit for Sarwark’s interests.
Congratulations to Robert for this prestigious honor!
