Raconte-moi Alicia Boole

On May 12th 2021, a tribute to Alicia Boole will be made public on our website.

Following the same line of ideas underlying our tribute to Maryam Mirzakhani for the first edition, we offer an artistic form intertwining a dozen contributions : dance, reading performance, story-telling, object animation... and some mathematical context of course (in french). Each contribution starts from a key-word linked to the story of Alicia Boole. As a whole they create some kind of Chinese portrait.
