Woods Lectures

J. James Woods Lecture Series

Lectures with Greg Gage and Tanya Smith Canceled

Due to the on-going impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Butler University is suspending Butler sponsored events of more than 50 people through April 4 out of the highest concern for the health, safety, and wellness of our campus community.

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 2019–2020 Season is announced! See our entire 2019–2020 Woods Series Schedule.

All Woods Lectures are free and open to the public—no tickets required.
