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.

Katrina Jagodinsky The ACM Newberry program was an excellent preparation for making the transition from undergraduate to graduate scholar. Not only were the seminar discussions excellent, the intimate training from archivists and work opportunities in Newberry departments introduced us to the broader academic network of professional scholars and gave us an advantage in applying to graduate schools. Even now, as a PhD Candidate in History at the University of Arizona, I am using skills learned at the Newberry Library to facilitate research at national repositories. Any ACM student considering graduate study should definitely seek the opportunity to participate in the Newberry Seminar in the Humanities.
