4pm, Tuesday 10th November: I Wish You Are Here – Mathematics & Mathematicians From History

In this Public Lecture, Snezana Lawrence will discuss the questions: ‘What is it that mathematicians do?’ and ‘Who gets to be called a ‘mathematician’ and why?’ She will discuss major questions concerning the nature of mathematics, and will link mathematicians by the substance of their ideas, and the historical and personal contexts in which they were developed.
