Seminars are taught by consortium scholars in their fields of specialization. Participants interact with fellow students from a variety of institutions and disciplines, while gaining a firsthand introduction to the Newberry’s holdings of manuscripts and early editions in its areas of strength.

Students may take these ten-week seminars on a not-for-credit basis or arrange to earn credit at their home campuses. When space permits, consortium faculty members are encouraged to audit Newberry seminars, and graduate students from non-consortium schools may also enroll. The course fee is waived for consortium students.

Note: Graduate students of Center for Renaissance Studies Consortium member universities may be eligible to apply for Newberry Renaissance Consortium Grants to attend CRS programs or to do research at the Newberry. Each member university sets its own policies and deadlines; contact your Representative Council member in advance for details.
