    2021; 138 pp
    MSC: Primary 00; 01;

    The articles in this volume grew out of a 2019 workshop, held at Johns Hopkins University, that was inspired by a belief that when mathematicians take time to reflect on the social forces involved in the production of mathematics, actionable insights result. Topics range from mechanisms that lead to an inclusion-exclusion dichotomy within mathematics to common pitfalls and better alternatives to how mathematicians approach teaching, mentoring and communicating mathematical ideas.

    This collection will be of interest to students, faculty and administrators wishing to gain a snapshot of the current state of professional norms within mathematics and possible steps toward improvements.

    Readership

    Undergraduate and graduate students and researchers interested in mathematical culture and society.

  • Table of Contents

    • These essays are not just catering to fashionable topics in today's discourse, but provide a thoughtful and practical combination of humanizing anecdotes and statistical assessments told by those connected to both the research and lived experience of the topic they are discussing....While this is not a comfortable book, it makes a good start to personal introspection and/or workplace conversation about what we all need to think about and change in order to make math and academic math spaces work for everyone.
