History of Mathematics: A Global Cultural Approach (online meeting)
MetadataShow full item record
Period13 Dec - 19 Dec 2020
The primary purpose of this workshop was to take account of progress on an ongoing six-volume cultural history of mathematics from antiquity to the present. This project is led by nine editors working with a large team of authors. Since the workshop had to be held remotely, it took the form of various group meetings held throughout the week. The final session involved assessments by editors of the six volumes with an eye toward completing the project by the end of 2021. The abstracts below summarize the contents of the individual chapters in the entire project, which will be published in Bloomsbury's cultural history series.
