Newberry Library Undergraduate Seminar
The NLUS program, sponsored by DePaul University, Loyola University Chicago, Roosevelt University, and the University of Illinois at Chicago, offers Chicago-area undergraduates a semester-long humanities seminar each year from January to May. The seminar carries the credit of two courses and involves common reading assignments, research in the Newberry’s core collections, and a major research paper. Seminars are team-taught and topics vary from year to year. Each class is limited to twenty participants, who are assigned individual study areas and are encouraged to work closely with Newberry staff.
The Spring 2019 seminar is Modern Literature and Art in Chicago: 1900-1960.
