The Newberry Library each year offers an undergraduate seminar that brings together motivated undergraduate students from a number of Chicago universities. The topic of this year’s seminar is Mexico and Peru through Word and Image, 1492-1820.
The seminar is team taught by instructors from different disciplines. This year the instructors are Dr. Delia Cosentino (DePaul University, History of Art and Architecture) and Dr. Priscilla Archibald (Roosevelt University, Literature and Languages).
Twenty students participate in the seminar, five from each of the following universities: DePaul, Loyola, UIC, and Roosevelt. This is a semester-long seminar that meets at the Newberry Library, January 13 through May 7, 2015, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 2:00–5:00pm. For DePaul students the seminar counts for 9 credit hours (4.5 for Winter Quarter and 4.5 for Spring Quarter) and fulfills the JYEL requirement for those who need it. These credits will count for classes in two departments, to be determined by the student and his or her advisor.
