History Distinguished Lecture

In an effort to increase the visibility of our discipline at DSU and within the wider Southern Utah community, the History and Political Science Department sponsors an annual History Distinguished Lecture. Once a year, we bring a Distinguished Lecturer — an academic historian with a substantial record of achievement and innovation in the discipline — to campus; s/he delivers a lecture on campus during the Spring semester and also meets with a group of history students during his/her visit.
