Claremont Discourse Series

Established in 1998, the Claremont Discourse lecture series is a forum for faculty at The Claremont Colleges to present current research, publications, and creative projects from a wide variety of disciplines. An important purpose of the series is to highlight and foster the ties between The Library and faculty in order to encourage dialog among audience members and speakers. Attendance is free and open to anyone.

2019 - 2020 Program Series

This fall, the library is dedicating Claremont Discourse to the memory of Pitzer historian, Stuart McConnell, who passed away at the beginning of this year. We will be hosting three panel discussions influenced by his research and personal interests. The topics include our current political climate (as part of our annual Constitution Day observation), the intersection between music and political activism, and whether we are experiencing a second Gilded Age.
