Women of Mathematics

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 shown 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. To open the exhibition there will be a small ceremony on Tuesday August 20th.
