Six portraits

In 2015, French artist Marie-Hélène Le Ny spent four days on the Missouri S&T campus, displaying her work and photographing and interviewing some of S&T’s female faculty. Six of those photographs hung in a Paris gallery this past winter.

The photos were part of Infinités Plurielles, a traveling exhibition commissioned by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research. The exhibition features photos of women faculty and scientists who work in universities, research institutions and companies. Their portraits include a narrative that describes their research and their work to promote equality in their fields. The “elles” in the title of the project is the feminine form of “they.” The play on words describes the project’s theme, which focuses on women’s many and varied contributions.

S&T faculty included in the Paris exhibit were Audra Merfeld-Langston, chair and associate professor of arts, languages and philosophy; Frances “Dee” Haemmerlie-Mongtomery, Curators’ Distinguished Teaching Professor emerita of psychological science; Elvan Akin, professor of mathematics and statistics; Kathleen Sheppard, associate professor of history and political science; Yahong Rosa Zheng, the Roy A. Wilkens Missouri Telecommunications Professor in electrical and computer engineering; and Cecilia Elmore, EMgt’86, former director of student diversity, outreach and women’s programs.
