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.

Newberry photoLed 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.
