The Newberry’s Milton Seminar is organized by Stephen Fallon, University of Notre Dame; Christopher Kendrick, Loyola University Chicago; Paula McQuade, DePaul University; and Regina Schwartz, Northwestern University.

The seminars are free and open to the public; registration in advance is required. Precirculated papers will be sent electronically to registrants.
