Entomology Seminar Series

The Department of Entomology sponsors a seminar series covering a wide range of topics and speakers. Seminars are normally held on Mondays of the spring and fall semesters. We typically enjoy some social time with light snacks from 3:40 until 4 pm, when the seminar begins. Please come and join us!

In addition to maintaining a high caliber of speakers, each year the department recognizes alumni and other scientists for their contributions to the science of entomology via the Distinguished Alumnus Award and the Theodore L. Hopkins Distinguished Colloquium Award. The students of the Popenoe Entomology Club also select the Popenoe Speaker each year and sponsor his or her visit to the department.

NOTE: Seminars in Waters 231 are streamed live using Zoom. If you would like to watch them live (all times are Central US time), you can join us:
