Newberry Colloquium

The Newberry Colloquium is a weekly opportunity for the Newberry community to come together and learn about research or projects being conducted by our staff, fellows, scholars-in-residence, and other invited speakers. Colloquium events are open to the Newberry community and the general public. Colloquia topics usually relate to the Newberry’s collection, and presentations are intended for a non-specialist audience.

Unless otherwise noted, the colloquium convenes on Wednesday afternoons in Towner Fellows’ Lounge on the 2nd floor of the Newberry. Refreshments are served at 3:30 pm, with the talk beginning at 4 pm. A brief discussion follows each presentation. No reservations are required in order to attend.

Newberry Colloquium
A Newberry Colloquium
Like Rudolph on that foggy Christmas Eve, your faithful host Kristin Emery will guide competitors through three rounds of questions (plus a bonus picture round!) on the coziest of topics. Modest prizes will be awarded. All are welcome to join these reindeer games, but please note that each team will be limited to a maximum of four members.
