One of the professors from the School of Journalism and Electronic Media, Dr. Amber Roessner, has been chosen by Emory University for their MARBL (Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library) Short-Term Fellowship. The fellowship awarded is in the amount of $1,000 to enable Dr. Roessner to undertake research on her project, "Jimmy Who?: Negotiating Jimmy Carter's Image in the Age of the Credibility Gap."
The fellowship requires a minimum one week residency to complete research in Emory University's manuscript and rare book collections. Each fellow must submit at the end of their residency a one page statement noting the materials consulted, the value of the collections to their research, and any comments regarding staff accessibility, facilities, or other matters to improve Emory's future service to scholars. Congratulations to Dr. Amber Roessner for her achievements in her area of research!
