The Shelby Cullom Davis Center Seminars present weekly programming on a variety of topics related to the Center's current theme. Visiting Fellows from academic institutions near and far help to create a rich understanding of the topic from diverse yet overlapping perspectives. The theme for the academic years 2023-24 and 2024-26 is “Truth and Information."

The papers are pre-circulated and can be accessed one-week prior to the date of the seminar. Email Lana Rogers ([email protected]) for a copy of the paper.
