New AMS Blog Covers Under-Represented Groups in Mathematics
A new American Mathematical Society (AMS) blog—called “inclusion/exclusion” debuted recently. The blog will cover issues pertaining to marginalized and under-represented groups in mathematics.
The editor-in-chief, Adriana Salerno of Bates College, and editors Edray Goins of Purdue University, Brian P. Katz of Augustana College, Luis Leyva of Vanderbilt University, and Piper Harron of the University of Hawaii at Manoa hope the blog will help develop a more inclusive, supportive, and diverse community of mathematicians.
The first posts are titled “Inclusion/Exclusion Principle,” “Hidden Figures: How and Why We Brought It to the 2017 JMM,” and “Hands Off My Confidence.” Future topics may include conferences targeted to under-represented groups; inclusive teaching strategies; summaries of current educational research; profiles of inspiring and successful under-represented mathematicians; and advice for students, faculty, and researchers at all levels.
The AMS invites readers to subscribe to the blog to receive notifications of new posts by email. Also, join the conversations by posting comments.
