Newberry Library Programs

Both our students and our faculty are greatly assisted in their research goals by our affiliation with the Center for Renaissance Studies at the Newberry Library, which allows us to participate in programs both at the Newberry Library in Chicago and raises UNL’s national profile as a premier research institution.

Newberry Library Graduate Programs


Graduate students in the program are invited to give papers as part of the Medieval and Renaissance Studies Lecture Series. These presentations allow students to present their research in a friendly enviorment while getting feedback from faculty and students.

Travel Funding

Graduate students are eligible for Paul A. Olson travel awards, named for the founder of the program, to support research trips and the presention their work at scholarly conferences.

For information regarding library consortium grants, presenting as part of the lecture series, or travel funding, contact Program Director Carole Levin for details.
