On Tues., Oct. 27 at 3:30 p.m., Sandra Schachat, an agricultural life sciences/entomology master’s student at MSU, is giving an illustrated talk titled “Japonisme and biodiversity in fin-de-siècle French art.”

The lecture will be given as a part of associate art professor Ben Harvey’s “Art in France-1850-1900” course. The lecture will be held in Howell Building, Room 103.

A New York native, Schachat holds bachelor’s degrees in art history and archaeology, with high honors in entomology, from the University of Maryland. She works at the Mississippi Entomological Museum as a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow under the direction of veteran professor Richard Brown. She also is the author of two publications on insects in art history and six publications on ecology and evolution. In addition to the College of Architecture, Art and Design’s art department, the program is supported by the Department of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Entomology and Plant Pathology.
