The Godbey Lecture Series

The Godbey Lecture Series is a distinguished Dedman College tradition with a 35-year history. The series features SMU faculty lecturing on a variety of topics, most often marking important historical events on their anniversary year. Lectures are free and open to the public. 

In 2016, the Godbey Series launched the annual Book Fest, a celebration of all books published by SMU faculty and staff the previous year. If you are an SMU faculty or staff member that has published a book in the previous year, please submit your information here to be included in the celebration!

Books Celebrated in 2021 can be found here. 

Upcoming Godbey Lectures will be posted on the DCII home page or email dcinterdisciplinaryinstitute@smu.edu or more information.
