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 - 5 pm at the Newberry, 60 W. Walton Street, Chicago. 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 department at Northwestern University, the Nicholson Center for British Studies at the University of Chicago, and the Irish Studies program at DePaul University.
Each year, the seminar accepts proposals for papers from March until May 1. Proposal instructions for 2016-2017 will be posted on March 1, 2016.
