Entering the field of mathematics can be tough, and women often encounter specific obstacles. A photo exhibition at UiT offers a glimpse into the world of mathematics through photographs of women mathematicians throughout Europe.
Mathematics was and maybe still is considered as a male dominated discipline and in particular women often encounter specific obstacles when entering the field of mathematics. The exhibition „Women of Mathematics“ offers a view into the world of mathematics through the lens of photographer Noel Tovia Matoff (Berlin) and features prominent examples of women working in mathematics. The exhibitions has already traveled around the world and has been shown in more than 60 places and it will be on display permanently at UiT in Tromsø starting August 20th.
In particular, thanks to generous support of Tromsø Research Foundation, it will now also feature the portrait of the Norwegian mathematician Ragni Piene.
