J. James Woods Lecture Series

The "Woods" Series was established by a generous gift from the estate of J. James Woods. The goal of the Woods bequest is to bring prominent mathematicians and scientists to Butler University in order to speak on theories at the frontier of their disciplines, as well as on related technologies and other issues of public concern.

The 2021–2022 Season is announced! See our entire 2021–2022 Woods Series Schedule.
