The Smith Center frequently hosts summer seminars and institutes exploring topics in the history of cartography. Funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, these programs bring in graduate students, college faculty, or K-12 school teachers for several weeks of intensive research and group discussion. Participants balance classes—which include an extensive reading schedule and guest lectures from scholars—with original research in the Newberry’s extensive collections.

Recent summer programs have included “Envisioning America in Maps and Art,” “Mapping and Art in the Americas,” and “Developing Cartographic Literacy.”
