The Newberry Library Colloquium

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

There will be no colloquium on Wednesday, May 22. The colloquium will convene the following week, May 29, for Karen Barzman’s presentation on topographical drawings of Venice and the Province of Dalmatia.

The Newberry Library Colloquium is a weekly gathering of Newberry staff members, fellows, scholars-in-residence, and readers on Wednesday afternoon in the Towner Fellows’ Lounge. Refreshments are available at 3:30 pm and an informal presentation begins at 4 pm, followed by discussion. The talks are varied, but all relate to the Newberry collections in some way. Speakers may describe a current research project, highlight a particular collection, or discuss one of the Library’s many ongoing or special programs. The Colloquium is open to the public and no reservations are required.
