Depar​tment Seminars​ - Spring 2022

Seminars are scheduled on Wednesdays from 10:45-11:30AM Eastern Time with a Q&A session at the end of each presentation. Most seminars will be virtual events (webinars) this semester, and a few seminars will be in person at Whistler Hall room 116 (WSLR 116). All Purdue Department of Entomology personnel will be sent a link to each webinar prior to the date of the event. Anyone outside the department that would like to be notified of upcoming webinars can subscribe to the entm.seminars listserv. Most of our virtual seminars are recorded and will be made available in a YouTube playlist shortly after the date of each seminar.

*The Jan 12 seminar will begin at 11:15AM due to a scheduling conflict.
