"Words of Women in Mathematics in the Time of Pandemic."
is a follow up of the film "Faces of women in mathematics", a project launched in 2018 by the mathematician Eugenie Hunsicker and the film maker Irene Linke. The screening of the film on May 12th will be distributed over several scientific institutions around the world. Further information will be available on the webpage: https://www.math.uni-potsdam.de/en/institute/women-in-mathematics
Three years after the very successful video "Faces of women in mathematics" and with a year of pandemic behind us, this new film collects words of women in mathematics about their experience during the Corona crisis. We have asked them to tell us how the pandemic has affected their personal and professional life. We hope that this project will contribute to increasing the visibility of women in mathematics, a visibility they might have lacked during the pandemic.
This new project emanates from a group of mathematicians Sonia Mahmoudi (Tohoku U., Japan), Claudia Malvenuto (U. Di Roma, Sapienza, Italy), Sylvie Paycha (U. Potsdam, Germany) and Eriko Shinkawa (Tohoku U., Japan), who after exchanging about their experience during the pandemic, joined their efforts with Eugenie Hunsicker and Irene Linke to bring this project to life.
