This opportunity is open to doctoral students at any stage of their research. PhD students are welcome to apply regardless of citizenship status.
Students must commit to attending all 8 sessions of the seminar. Sessions take place Fridays between February 11 and April 8, with no meeting on February 25. Class meets from 9:30 am to noon, with a catered lunch from noon to 1:00 pm. The first and last sessions run from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm. Additionally, seminar participants will spend one additional day per week at the Newberry pursuing their own hands-on archival processing projects. For students outside of the Chicago area, that extra day would ideally be a Thursday or a Saturday.
Full attendance is a requirement in order to be considered for this opportunity.
The Newberry Library has gender neutral and wheelchair accessible restrooms on the first floor. The building has a lift near the front entrance and two additional wheelchair accessible entrances on the north side of the building. Organizers can provide adjustable-height desks upon request.
