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 the Texana Room of Fondren Library Center, 6404 Robert S. Hyer Lane.  No registration necessary.
