The Number and Narratives: A Feminist Genealogy of Automathographies will hold a Research Symposium on May 12th, 2025. In joining the May 12th celebrations all over the world, this symposium will address, amongst others, the following questions:

  • How can we think differently about the problem that well into the 21st century women are still marginalized in mathematical sciences?
  • How can we make sense of women mathematicians’ historical emergence as subjects of scientific knowledge, as well as creators of philosophy and culture?
  • In what ways can memory work in the archives motivate young women and girls to re-imagine themselves as mathematicians in the future?

 This is a call for papers for researchers and graduate students, who are interested in unravelling entanglements between gender, science and culture, excavating the history of women mathematicians, scientists and philosophers, but also, re-imagining the future of gender and science education in general and women in mathematics in particular.

Please send an abstract of around 200 words with a short bio to Maria Tamboukou, at m.tamboukou@uel.ac.uk by June 30, 2024. More information about this symposium can be found at: https://sites.google.com/view/numbersandnarratives/conferences-and-seminars/research-symposium.
