Sir Salman Rushdie's archive, housed at Emory's Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, & Rare Book Library, is open to the public. The celebrated writer's computer files, private journals, notebooks, photographs and manuscripts provide insight into his creative process, campaigns for human rights and celebrity. Rushdie's latest book, "Joseph Anton: A Memoir," chronicles his life during the fatwa.

As a University Distinguished Professor at Emory, Rushdie taught, presented public lectures and engaged with the academic community on campus. He initially served as a Distinguished Writer-in-Residence.
