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 spring, the library will be hosting four academic lectures covering the following topics: the neuroscience of cooperative songbird duets (Dr. Melissa Coleman, Keck Science Department), whether the United States is experiencing a second Gilded Age (Dr. Tamara Venit-Shelton, Claremont McKenna College), how the relationship between health disparities and politics contributes to the maintenance of inequality in the United States (Dr. Javier Rodriguez, Claremont Graduate University), and the application of mathematical modeling to better understand biological phenomena (Dr. Christina Edholm, Scripps College).
