The Seminar Series, now over 30 years old, invites scholars from around the world to share their work in a formal lecture, which is followed by a rigorous question and answer session and a light dinner.
The Spring 2014 seminars will be hosted by Dr. Mark Koyama and coordinated by admin assistant Jane Perry. All papers made available will be posted on this site for downloading. For more information, call the Center: (703) 993-2330.
Spring 2014 seminars will be held from 4:00 - 5:15 in Carow Hall, which is on George Mason University's Fairfax campus.
