Role & Tasks:
My main project consists in processing Arthur Howe, Jr.'s personal collection, digitizing it, and in organizing an interactive exhibition based on the archival materials.
My fellowship in the AFS Archives means being constantly in touch with the documents, artifacts, and photographs from the history of AFS, and especially with the great people that shaped this organization and made it grow. This is why I feel honored to focus on the processing and preservation of Arthur Howe Jr.’s collection during my fellowship. Art was a World War II volunteer, former president, and Life Trustee of AFS. In addition to that, working at AFS International gives me the opportunity to experience the contact with other cultures and languages, starting from the office! As a comparative literature graduate, I find it really inspiring.
