Clements Center Noon Talks

Clements Center Monthly Noon Talk 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. 

These presentations are usually held on Wednesdays in the DeGolyer Library, 6404 Robert S. Hyer Lane at McFarlin Boulevard, from 12 noon to 1 pm.
