Shannon Rogers ’19 – Newberry Seminar in Chicago, Illinois

My name is Shannon Rogers and I am infatuated with research and it’s growing importance within the professional and undergraduate setting.  When I think of research, I think of honesty.  Research is exciting due to its mere nature.  There may not always be an immediate answer, but the process reveals truths about me, the researcher.  As Martin Luther King Jr. once articulated, “We are not makers of history.  We are made by history.”

I will be studying at the Newberry Library Seminar in Chicago during the Fall 2017 semester.  I am overjoyed to experience a city that is filled with diversity in thought and culture.  Studying in Chicago will take me out of my comfort zone and allow me to learn more about myself alongside the history of Chicago itself.  I look forward to all God has in store for me in conducting research at Newberry.
