Description and practical details

The School of Mathematics and Physical Sciences celebrates Women in Mathematics Day with a social event open to all.

We will screen two animated documentaries: “Alicia Boole in the land of polytopes” and “Kovaleskaya' Spinning Top” (11 minutes each).

We will then screen a short numberphile video featuring Dr Harini Desiraju, who will attend the event as a special guest. The screenings will be followed by a small reception in the atrium.

We will also have

  • An exhibit of the ‘Australian Women of Mathematics’ posters featuring voices of women in the Australian mathematical community.
  • A meeting of the EDI journal discussion club of our School, where we will discuss an article on the newly released numbers on the gender pay gap at Australian Universities.
