A symposium on Euclidean geometry in nineteenth- and early twentieth-century British culture will be held in Cambridge, UK, 1-2 October 2009.
Speakers include Professors Dame Gillian Beer, Joan L. Richards, Jeremy Gray, Marilyn Gaull, Linda Henderson and Robin Wilson. This interdisciplinary symposium aims to explore the story of Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometry in the nineteenth century, and to investigate the relationships of geometry and artistic culture from Romanticism to Modernism.
The symposium will be held at the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH), and is funded by the European Research Council. Anyone interested in Victorian mathematics or culture is very welcome to attend. The regular fee is £20; a reduced rate is available.
