2018 Fall Lecture Series

Details on our Fall 2018 Lectures

The Charles Redd Center for Western Studies at Brigham Young University is excited to announce the participants for its annual Fall Lecture Series. These lectures are open to the public and stream live online on YouTube and Facebook. Past lectures can be viewed at the Redd Center YouTube Channel. We encourage educators to consider including one or many of these events in course syllabi, asking student to watch live, participate live in Q&A by sending questions in via Twitter or Facebook, or use the lecture videos as the launching point for a writing assignment or extra credit.

The series highlights new and innovative research in Western American studies. Many feature scholars who have previously received funding and support from the Redd Center. For details on time and location visit the individual Facebook Event links below, or here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/BYUReddCenter/events.
