The Newberry”s Chicago Studies Research Center illuminates Chicago’s dynamic history, literature, art, culture, and politics through an array of scholarly and public programs inspired by the library’s unique archival collection.

Chicago Studies encompasses multi-year research projects, summer institutes and seminars, public programming, training for graduate students, youth outreach programs, and collaborations with other cultural institutions in Chicago. The program draws upon the expertise of Newberry staff and the library’s deep and rich primary source material related to Chicago’s past.
