10-12 April 2014, Mathematical Cultures 3 (MC3), London, U.K.

Date: 10-12 April 2014
Location: London, U.K.
Deadline: 30 November 2013

MC3 is the third in a series of three conferences with associated publications on mathematics as culture and mathematics in culture. The third conference will consider the relation between mathematics and other cultures, whether popular or specialist. Amongst other topics, it will explore the question "why should I study mathematics?" - from perspectives within and outside mathematical cultures.

Abstracts of about 300 words are invited on the place and reception of mathematics in non-mathematical cultures, relations between mathematical and non-mathematical cultures, and especially the cultural significance of mathematics for school pupils, their parents and other advisers at the points when they decide whether or not to study it. Historical analyses are welcome, especially if they offer insight (possibly through contrast) into the experiences and conditions of present-day developed societies. The deadline is 30 November 2013.
