Spring 2015: Mexico and Peru through Word and Image, 1492-1820

October, 2014

To: All Students in the College of Arts and Sciences
From: Dr. Kyle Roberts, Department of History

Applications for the Newberry Library Undergraduate Seminar are currently being accepted. This year's seminar is entitled “Mexico and Peru through Word and Image, 1492-1820" and will be taught by Dr. Priscilla Archibald (associate professor of Latin American literature at Roosevelt University, and Delia Consentino, associate professor of History of Art and Architecture at DePaul University). For a full description of the course and further details, visit the Newberry Library's Undergraduate Seminar Website.

Five Loyola undergraduates will be selected to participate in this six-credit interdisciplinary seminar, which also includes students from DePaul, Roosevelt, and the University of Illinois at Chicago. The seminar allows students to combine an intensive classroom experience with independent research carried out in the Newberry Library, one of the country's richest archives of primary source materials on history and culture. The seminar will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:00-5:00 p.m. from January 13 to May 7, 2015 at the Newberry Library, 60 West Walton Street, Chicago.

The seminar is open to qualified students in all disciplines. Those interested in applying to graduate school and to many professional schools, whether law school or library science, have found the Newberry Seminar an exhilarating challenge and an opportunity to work with both students and faculty from other universities at a very high level.

Please download the NLUS Application to start the process. You may also review the NLUS 2015 brochure and Newberry Seminar Website for additional information. Please email Kyle Roberts at kroberts2@luc.edu if you have further questions.

Applications are due via e-mail by 10 pm on November 1, 2014. Participants will be selected and notified by November 2, before the pre-registration period.
