ARLIS/NA New York is thrilled to announce this year’s awardee of the Celine Palatsky Travel Award for attendance at ARLIS/NA's Annual Conference in Chicago, Illinois.
Nic Caldwell (he/they) has been a member of the ARLIS/NA New York Chapter since 2020. Nic is a Curatorial Fellow at The Morgan Library and Museum (@themorganlibrary) and a 2021 graduate of the NYU Dual Degree program, with a Masters in English Literature and Library and Information Science. His approach to library work is to challenge the boundaries of who has access to knowledge, who creates history, and whose stories get to be told. He is particularly interested in how archives and special collections can be made more accessible to marginalized communities.
Nic will be presenting a Lightning Talk, “Our Artists, Our Culture: Critically Cataloging The Black Arts Movement”, at the Annual Conference.
This year’s award committee was Giana Ricci, Jillian Suarez, and Joey Vincennie.
