Invitations to Two Long Reads

Two volumes have come to our attention that might be of interest to our readers.

Mathematics and Motherhood,” a special issue of the Journal of Humanistic Mathematics co-edited by Pamela Harris, Carrie Diaz Eaton, Becky Hall, and Emille Davie Lawrence.

“Power in Numbers: The Rebel Women of Mathematics” By Talithia Williams. An AMS review of this book is here.

Tiger Advocates

Inside Clemson has recently profiled two Tiger Advocates: Tom Britt and Harry Kurtz.

“Part of the NSF-funded ADVANCE initiative, Tiger Advocates is a group of faculty interested in supporting equality in their departments, colleges and throughout the university. Advocates are active and effective proponents of gender diversity and equality specifically in terms of increasing the number of women and underrepresented faculty, encouraging the hiring for and promotion of women and underrepresented faculty into administrative positions, and ensuring the fair and equitable treatment of all faculty within their academic units.”
