Although I’ve attended a number of MathsJam Gatherings 2023’s was the first at which I’ve given a talk. It was titled ‘Secret Histories: Spotting the Hidden Maths in Museums‘.
Abstract from the event website archive:
The sum total of human mathematical knowledge didn’t just pop into being last Thursday, but galleries, libraries, museums and archives have always been a bit shy about shedding light on its role in almost every part of history. This is a quickfire collection of just some of the gems I’ve seen sparkling through the cracks, along with a call-to-action for any museum-going maths fans.
