Francesca Morgan and Joan Johnson, both of the History Department, organize the Newberry Seminar on Women and Gender. This is an annual series of meetings featuring scholars and graduate students from the Chicagoland area as well as from around the nation. The seminar is co-sponsored by the Departments of History at Northeastern Illinois University, DePaul University, the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the Karla Scherer Center for the Study of American Culture at the University of Chicago. The seminar is hosted by the Dr. William M. Scholl Center for American History and Culture at the Newberry Library. Established by Johnson and Morgan in 2007, the seminar brings together scholars from a variety of historical fields to share their original research on gender and women. It features senior scholars as well as graduate students in the dissertation-writing stage. Undergraduates who are interested in attending graduate school are welcome to attend. All presentations are free and open to the public.
The Newberry Seminar on Women and Gender meets six to eight times annually on Friday afternoons at the Newberry Library, 60 West Walton, Chicago, IL.
