Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library at Emory University Publications
The Emory Libraries Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, & Rare Book Library (Rose Library) promotes access, learning, equity, and justice by documenting, preserving, and making accessible a variety of historical materials ranging from African American History and Culture, Political, Social, and Cultural Movements, Rare Books, Emory University Archives, Literature, and Poetry.
Archival research is foundational to creating an academic discourse marked by historical evidence, rigorous debate, and intellectual freedom. In a world marked by fast paced industry, technological innovation, and cries for new social infrastructures, the archives provide both creative and analytical opportunities for dynamic and diverse approaches to our collective futures.
The Rose Library Series at the University of Georgia Press contributes to this work by supporting important scholarship that utilizes Rose Library collections and/or opens dialogue that shares a strong connection to the materials. We are particularly interested in studies that broaden the scope of how to view archival research by focusing on stories from the collections that often go untold, untaught, and unstudied. The Rose Library series seeks proposals that are clear, concise, and most keenly address the themes outlined in this call. Proposals will be reviewed by an interdisciplinary selection of scholars, subject experts, archivists, curators, and the publishing team.
