Anne-Marie Eze

Associate Librarian for Collections and Programs
Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences
Houghton Library

I lead Houghton Library's Collections and Programs Division, comprised of five curatorial departments, and a scholarly and public programs unit. The Collections and Programs Division is responsible for collection development, exhibitions, programs, publications, visiting fellowships, and external communications activities. I first joined Houghton Library in 2016 as Director of Scholarly and Public Programs and was promoted to my current role in 2021.

Prior to joining Harvard, I was Associate Curator of the Collection at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston, where I co-curated the exhibition "Beyond Words: Italian Renaissance Books," which won the Association of Art Museum Curators Award for Excellence in 2017. Originally, from the United Kingdom, I have held curatorial and librarian positions at the British Library, Victoria and Albert Museum, and Cambridge University’s Trinity College Library, where I worked on projects ranging from medieval and Renaissance art to contemporary photography. Educated in England and in Italy, I hold a doctorate in art history from the Courtauld Institute of Art and, from University College London, a MA in library and information studies, and a BA in classics, including a study-year abroad at the University of Bologna.
