Every year since 1965, the History Department has sponsored an annual series of lectures in memory of the prominent Texas historian, Walter Prescott Webb.

Held each March, the event brings distinguished scholars to UTA to speak on subjects of historical and contemporary significance. Following the conclusion of the series, guest speakers are invited to revise and polish their lectures for inclusion in an edited collection published by Texas A&M University Press.

Recent Webb Lectures have addressed a wide range of topics including travel and travel writing in the modern era; the Medieval Mediterranean world; new historical approaches to the Texas Revolution; disability history; transnational perspectives on the Soviet Bloc; and deportation in the Americas.
