People, Places, Practices, is the 5-yearly joint conference of the British Society for the History of Mathematics and Canadian Society for History and Philosophy of Mathematics/La Société Canadienne d'Histoire et de Philosophie des Mathématiques, in collaboration with HOM-SIGMAA, the History of Mathematics Special Interest Group of the MAA.
All are welcome to the conference. You need not be a member (though registration rates are lower for members)
An Education Strand within the conference will run on 6-7 July. This will provide practical talks and workshops for those teaching the 15+ age group. Professor Évelyne Barbin, author of Let History into the Mathematics Classroom will talk about the French experience, where history of mathematics has recently been made an required part of the secondary mathematics curriculum. The programme will be designed to minimise accommodation costs (0 or 1 night) and we are exploring ways of enabling remote participation. Some help with funding for secondary and primary school teachers may be available.
Our meeting will be co-located with the Eleventh Conference on Mathematical Cultures and Practices (MC&P-XI, 8-10th July 2020). The two events will overlap on the afternoon of 8th July.
People, Places, Practices, will showcase a broad range of approaches to the history of mathematics:
