MGSC Colloquium

SPEAKER: Brian Katz (CSU Long Beach)

Title: Math is Not Neutral

Abstract: Mathematics is not a neutral worldview, and some of the common aspects of our disciplinary epistemologies hinder justice and rehumanizing efforts or actively support problematic systems. However, the power of these worldviews and epistemologies makes these issues hard to see and resists their critique and change. In this session, I will discuss some of my efforts to have these conversations and make these issues visible with students and faculty, attending to the impact and responsibility coming from my identities.
