Dana Clyman Seminars

The Dana Clyman Research Seminar Series is dedicated to Dana Clyman, who was a member of the Darden faculty from 1992 until his untimely death in the fall of 2003. Through his untiring energy, interdisciplinary perspective and inexhaustible inquisitiveness, he created an intellectual vibrancy among his colleagues and beyond. It is to the continuation of that vibrancy to which the Dana Clyman Research Seminar Series is dedicated.
