Director of Research and Academic Programs, A.S. Williams III Americana Collection

I’m excited to announce that beginning June 1, I will be come the Director of Research and Academic Programs in the A.S. Williams III Americana Collection at The University of Alabama. I’ve worked in the Williams Collection since I arrived at UA and the position is everything I could hope for. I’ll be promoting the Williams Collection on a campus, a regional, and a national level, guiding digitization strategies to broaden the reach of the Collection, and creating projects and exhibitions that will showcase what the Collection has to offer.

If you were to ask me a year ago if I would be starting a tenure-track job in a fantastic archive only ten months after handing in my dissertation, I would have told you no. The new position is an amazing opportunity in an ideal spot and I could not be happier.
