A. Watson Armour III Research Seminar Series

About this recurring event

Our weekly seminar series features speakers and their research related to the study of natural history and culture.

Varied speakers from around the world present their work in this weekly academic seminar series. The Field Museum invites scientists from universities, museums, and other institutions to explore topics in anthropology, botany, paleontology, and zoology. From discoveries in Africa’s fossil record to the use of technology in combating climate change, each seminar welcomes guests to connect with a wide range of scholars and research. 

All seminars are free to attend. Museum admission is not required. We encourage guests to use the West Entrance, as seminars typically take place in the A. Montgomery Ward Lecture Hall on the ground level. Guests entering through another door may check in with staff to be escorted to the event.
