Call for Session Contributors: History of Science Society Annual Meeting, 19 - 22 November, Phoenix, AZ
Collaboration and Its Discontents in Twentieth-Century Mathematics
Collaboration--and its failure--has been one of the important defining characteristics of mathematics in the twentieth century, whether in British- or European-American mathematical relationships, or in the working relationships of men with women or individuals with institutions.
The History of Mathematics Interest Group, a new interest group of the History of Science Society, is organizing this session for this year's History of Science Society meeting in Phoenix, Arizona, 19 - 22 November. We welcome paper proposals for this session on the history of collaboration, broadly conceived, in twentieth-century mathematics.
To submit a paper proposal, please send a paper title, 100 - 150 word abstract, and brief cv to Kathryn James at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send submissions by Sunday, March 22, 2009.
