Emily Horning


Emily Horning, Director of Undergraduate Programs for the Yale Library, enjoys speaking with students about career paths for history and humanities majors. By training she is a historian of early modern Europe; her work in graduate school concerned the transition from manuscript to print culture in France and England. Emily is also the curator of the Yale Library’s Curtis Mountaineering Collection, and while not strictly speaking a mountaineer, she is an enthusiastic hiker, having climbed in North, Central and South America, Europe, the Arctic, eastern and southern Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Over lunch in JE she would be delighted to talk about foreign and domestic travel, so-called “Arc TV” (those finely-crafted television serials like Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey, Breaking Bad, The Sopranos and especially, especially The Wire), literature and movies of all kinds, and volunteering in New Haven. She hails from southern California, is a fan of UCLA Basketball and the Lakers and would be happy to commiserate about New England weather. emily.horning@yale.edu
