The Newberry Library Undergraduate Seminar, Spring 2018 is a great opportunity for our undergraduates. As you may know, the seminar is a 6-credit hour course co-taught by two area faculty. The course is open, by application only, to undergraduates from UIC, Loyola, DePaul, and Roosevelt Universities. It’s a wonderful opportunity for advanced students, particularly those who might be considering graduate school, to be initiated into research and writing in the context of one of the best research collections on the early modern period.
This year’s theme is “Censorship and Freedom of Expression in an Era of Religious Change: Western Europe, 1450-1789.” The instructors will be Valentina Tikoff, Associate Professor of History at DePaul, and Glen Carman, Associate Professor of Spanish in the Modern Languages Dept., also at Depaul. The class also runs simultaneously with exhibits and other events on related topics.
Please distribute information and the application for the seminar this spring 2018!
