Newberry Seminar: Research in the Humanities

Chicago, Illinois

Living arrangements

Students in the Newberry seminar live in an apartment building in the heart of Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood and a few blocks walk from the Newberry Library.

Two students share each studio apartment (similar in size to a standard dorm room) with a kitchenette, bathroom and walk-in closet. The apartments are approximately 15' x 18' and are furnished with one or two chairs, tables, lamps, ovens, and compact refrigerators. Some apartments have Murphy beds; others have regular twin beds. It's an ideal location for young people living in the city.

Tommy Jamison The Newberry had a strong, positive influence on my professional and academic development. It shaped my primary academic interest in 20th century European and American empires and, more practically, gave me a sound methodological foundation for archival research. I really am grateful for the opportunity and the training the Newberry gave me; to say nothing of how lovely it was to live in downtown Chicago for a semester!
