Core Program

The annual core program—a series of interdisciplinary events developed around a common theme—ranges from three or four consecutive workshops to a series spanning a year or more, with a full complement of symposia, workshops, graduate seminars, and public lectures, held at the Clark or on UCLA’s main campus. Core programs are organized each year by the current Center/Clark Professor or Professors, who are encouraged to design programs that will lead to publication in the Center/Clark series. The Center’s Ahmanson-Getty Fellowships are linked to the core programs as well, both in terms of themes and events.
