Newberry Seminar: Research in the Humanities

Chicago, Illinois

Living arrangements

Students in the Newberry seminar live in an apartment building in the heart of Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood and a few blocks walk from the Newberry Library.

Two students share each studio apartment (similar in size to a standard dorm room) with a kitchenette, bathroom and walk-in closet. The apartments are approximately 15' x 18' and are furnished with one or two chairs, tables, lamps, ovens, and compact refrigerators. Some apartments have Murphy beds; others have regular twin beds. It's an ideal location for young people living in the city.

Nanette Johnson My semester at the Newberry inspired me with a real love of scholarly research. At the Newberry, I did research on Pre-Shakespearean Morality plays, and am now retired from 30+ years as an English & Theatre teacher. I learned a great deal from all who participated—library staff, instructors and fellow students. I stayed in touch with many of them for many years, and am most happy to learn that the experience is still being offered to today's students.
