History and Pedagogy of Mathematics ICME-15 Satellite Meeting

Among the activities of the HPM Group, there is the tradition of organizing conferences that are satellite meetings to the International Congress on Mathematical Education (ICME), organized by ICMI every four years. The next HPM satellite meeting will be held in Sydney, Australia, at the Kensington campus of the University of New South Wales, 1st – 5th July 2024. HPM 2024 is the eleventh quadrennial meeting of the International Study Group on the Relations Between the History and Pedagogy of Mathematics—the HPM Group (an affiliated study group of the International Commission on Mathematical Instruction, ICMI ). By combining the history of mathematics with the teaching and learning of mathematics, HPM connects the past and the future of mathematics. Therefore, the group aims to stress the conception of mathematics as a living science, a science with a long history, a vivid present, and an as yet unforeseen future. Our local organisers are Jim Pettigrew, Merryn Horrocks and Donald Shearm

CfP: Science and Protestantism in Eastern Europe, 1700-2000

Ábrahám Kovács (János Selye University, Slovakia) and Matthew Daniel Eddy (Durham University) are seeking one further essay of 8,000 words for a special journal issue on Science and Protestantism in Eastern Europe, 1700-2000. The remit for the volume is as follows: Studies on the historical relationship between science and religion in Eastern Europe often focus on the pervasive presence of Catholicism and its impact on natural knowledge. But there was a flourishing interface between science in Calvinist, Lutheran, Baptist, Adventist and Unitarian communities living across the region from the Reformation to modern times. This volume focuses on these groups and examines the longstanding relationship between science and Protestantism in Eastern Europe from circa 1700 to 2000. Focusing on literature written in Latin, Hungarian, Romanian, German and English, and covering a variety of thinkers with different ethnic affiliations, the essays ask to what extent scientific and theological id

The Complete Library of Charles Darwin published online

The Darwin Online project has launched a major addition begun in Cambridge 18 years ago which may interest some of you - The Complete Library of Charles Darwin. The catalogue is a reconstruction of Darwin’s library as it was in his lifetime, hence not just recording extant books in institutional collections today (1,480 is the usual number, it turns out that many books have been overlooked). Combining these important works with hundreds of other titles derived from a huge array of sources- especially the work of many scholars, librarians and archivists and by including family catalogues to rare books sales from 1889 to the present and by including all print sources Darwin owned (not just bound ones) such as journals, pamphlets and clippings- we arrive at a collection of 7,400 titles across 13,000 volumes/items. Hundreds of these were not known to scholars before. (The project enlarged the catalogue of books known to be on HMS Beagle and digitized that library in its entirety in 2014.)
