369. Chicago: The Transformation of America's Second City, 1880-1940
This course offers students the opportunity to explore the history of Chicago and complete an
original research project based upon a first-hand exploration of the city and the holdings of the
Newberry Library. The seminar will examine the crucial years in Chicago's evolution from
regional center to metropolis by looking at the related themes of urbanization, industrialization,
and immigration. All of these developments are richly documented in the Newberry's
collections, which include archival materials pertaining to urban planning and architecture,
immigrant life, African American communities, industrial growth and labor relations, political
development, and diverse civic and commercial cultures. Drawing upon the Library's
collections, students will discover how the spatial formation of contemporary Chicago still
reflects its historical origins, and will have the opportunity to use these rare materials in crafting
their individual research papers. Prerequisite: junior standing or permission of instructor.
