Event Description

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 2022-23 and 2023-24 is “Environment and Climate.”

The seminar starts with a brief comment by an invited commentator, and a response from the author, after which the floor is open for questions from attendees. The papers are pre-circulated (University login required) and can be accessed one week prior to the date of the seminar.
