Clements Center Monthly Talks

Clements Center Monthly Noon Lecture Series

During the semester the Clements Center organizes monthly programs for SMU faculty, staff, graduate students, and members of the community who are interested in topics related to the Texas, the American Southwest and the U.S.-Mexico borderlands.  Presentations are wide-ranging and interdisciplinary, often reporting on current research, recent publications, or new exhibitions.

Unless otherwise specified, these presentations are held on Wednesdays at noon in various locations on campus.
