The Newberry’s Center for Renaissance Studies has posted the first entry on their new blog!
They plan to post every two weeks, with entries on thoughts about
upcoming or recent Center programs; items in the Newberry collection of special interest to those involved in medieval, Renaissance, or early modern studies; or profiles of scholars coming to the Newberry to present talks or pursue research in those areas of study. More frequently, we will also post announcements of upcoming events, application deadlines, and so forth.
The Center for Renaissance Studies has been a good friend to the CLIR French pamphlet project. They helped to describe the scholarly significance of the collections for our grant; they have publicized our job openings and were key in helping us find some of our wonderful Cataloging Assistants; they have invited us to talk with their French paleography institute; and they will be key in planning a series of lectures and an exhibit highlighting materials discovered in the French pamphlet collections when we are finished cataloging.
Welcome to the world of blogging!
