Godbey Lecture Series

The Godbey Lectures, a distinguished Dedman College tradition with a 35-year history, now falls under the auspices of the DCII. These lectures feature SMU faculty on a variety of topics focused primarily on the humanities. A new highlight is an Anniversary series marking important historical events. Lectures are free and open to the public.

In 2016, the Godbey Series launched the annual Faculty Book Fest, a celebration of all books published by SMU faculty members the previous year. If you are an SMU faculty member that has published a book in the previous year, please send your information to with the subject "Faculty Book Fest Submission" to be included in the celebration!

Upcoming Godbey Lectures will be posted on the DCII event page, or email for more information.
