Universals’ Locales: The International and Global History and Sociology of Modern Theoretical and Mathematical Sciences

January 8-9, 2020, Edinburgh, Scotland

We are seeking early career scholars (by your own definition) interested in the history or sociology of the modern theoretical and mathematical sciences for an interdisciplinary 2-day workshop exploring the methods and implications of studying the local and global scales of seemingly universal knowledge. Conversations will be guided by a fantastic group of senior scholars: Martina Merz (Alpen-Adria-Universität), Tatiana Roque (Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro), David Aubin (Sorbonne Université), and Ursula Martin (Oxford and Edinburgh).

Travel, accommodation, and meals during the workshop are funded for accepted participants. Please contact Michael Barany via locales@mathglobal.org with any questions or expressions of interest. A brief formal application is due 20 September.

British Academy sponsored workshop, hosted at the University of Edinburgh.

Further details and application information are here.
