About

Conduct independent research at one
of the world’s great research libraries – the Newberry Library – in the dynamic
city of Chicago. The ACM Newberry
Seminar: Research in the Humanities
offers a significant research
experience that will prepare you for graduate study, professional education,
and other careers.

 

Led by a team of two visiting
faculty members, the fall Newberry Seminar focuses on a specific theme in the
humanities and is structured to provide context and guidance as you write a
substantial paper on a topic of your choice, based on research in the library’s
rich primary collections.

 

You’ll engage with the Newberry community,
present your work to the library’s research scholars, and have the opportunity
to gain practical experience through a part-time job at the library.

 

The collections of the Newberry
Library span the history and culture of Western Europe from the Middle Ages to
the mid-20th century and the Americas from the time of first contact between
Europeans and Native Americans. As a Newberry Seminar participant, you will be
among a select few undergraduates to have full research access to this
incredible source material.

 

Throughout your semester in Chicago,
you will live in a program apartment in the heart of the city’s Gold Coast
neighborhood, close to the Newberry Library as well as theatres, museums,
parks, restaurants, and Lake Michigan.
