Faculty research & teaching
The Newberry program offers terrific opportunities to faculty members from the ACM and GLCA colleges.
Teaching the Newberry Seminar
The seminar is led by teams of instructors from the ACM and GLCA colleges. This is an opportunity to lead advanced students in discussion and research at a world-class library. Past team members have seen this as the best teaching experience of their careers. Seminar leaders can also do their own research in the library's collections. For additional information please contact Joan Gillespie (312.263.5000).
Research at the Newberry
If you are interested in doing short-term research at the Newberry, we can arrange for housing near the library for short stays. Many faculty members use this as an opportunity to plan for a research sabbatical, or to prepare a proposal to lead the Newberry Seminar. Please read ACM's guidelines for proposals and contact Joan Gillespie or Lindsey Wolf with any questions.
Chicago Humanities Festival
The Chicago Humanities Festival gererously offers ACM and GLCA colleges a great opportunity to bring up to four students to Chicago for this outstanding festival, providing two nights lodging, two breakfasts, and VIP seating. Faculty members sponsoring at least two students will also receive those benefits. In the past, this weekend is held during late October or early November. More information is available in mid-September, please contact Lindsey Wolf.
Names of students
Please send us the names of your students who would benefit from participation in the Newberry Seminar. It is designed for those considering graduate study in the humanities, or who simply enjoy independent research and writing. Contact our office with the names of possible students.
