From May to September 2018, Adam will complete an AHRC fellowship with the Library of Congress in Washington D.C, offered through WRoCAH. The LoC is the largest library in the world, with bibliographic resources covering all subject areas, complemented by an active and diverse scholarly community. Based at the John W. Kluge Center for the Humanities, Adam will work on the historical background to his thesis, namely the Dutch Revolt and “Catholic Revival” c.1566-1648, utilising the LoC’s unparalleled collections of cartography and rare books, with holdings originating in the libraries of former US presidents including Thomas Jefferson. A plethora of world-class institutions are within the vicinity, not least the Folger Shakespeare Library, the National Gallery of Art and the Smithsonian Institution. In his spare time Adam will visit numerous cities along the East Coast and see important art museums in Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York.
