The Newberry Seminar in British History brings scholars and students from Chicagoland institutions together to discuss their ongoing research in a workshop format. It is open to graduate students, independent scholars, and faculty at any stage of their careers. Seminar sessions are held on Fridays from 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM at the Newberry, 60 West Walton Street, Chicago, Illinois. Please consult the bulletin board in the lobby on the day of the seminar for the room location.
The seminar is co-sponsored by the History Departments at Northwestern University and the University of Illinois at Chicago, the Nicholson Center for British Studies at the University of Chicago, and the Irish Studies program at DePaul University.
Deborah Cohen of Northwestern University, Fredrik Jonsson of the University of Chicago, and Ina Zweiniger-Bargielowska of the University of Illinois at Chicago serve as coordinators of the seminar.
We will pre-circulate papers approximately two week before the seminar to those planning to attend. If you cannot attend and want to read a paper, please contact the author directly. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (312) 255-3700 to receive a copy of the paper or to be placed on the electronic mailing list to receive announcements of upcoming seminars. Please include your email address in all communications.
The seminar format assumes that all participants have read the essays in advance, and that those requesting the paper will attend the seminar. We encourage faculty members to call the seminar to the attention of graduate students.
