The Entomology & Insect Science (EIS) Graduate interdisciplinary Program (GIDP) has initiated an endowment for an annual lectureship at the University of Arizona in memory of Henry H. Hagedorn, Professor Emeritus of the Department of Entomology, and Director of the Center for Insect Science.
The purpose of the speakership is to bring to the UA distinguished speakers in any area of research related to insects, and to promote interdisciplinary interactions among the speaker, students and faculty members of the EIS community who are dispersed among 10 departments in four colleges. Speakers are selected by the graduate students of the Entomology & Insect Science GIDP. The endowment funds provide travel and per diem expenses, as well as an appropriate honorarium fee for the invited scientist. The speaker's schedule includes some social time for the speaker with students and faculty.
On September 29, 2017, the EIS program will welcome Dr. Barrett Klein, Associate Professor in Biology at the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse, to give a talk entitled, "Honey bee communication: the tale of a sleep-deprived dancer and her unwitting followers."
