17 - 21 September 2018, Methodological Approaches in the Study of Recent Mathematics, Konstanz, Germany

Date: 17 - 21 September 2018
Location: Konstanz, Germany
Deadline: Thursday 31 May 2018

The first Forcing Project Networking Conference (FPNC2018) is the informal kick-off event of the Forcing Project. The project aims to analyse, from a historical and philosophical point of view, the development of modern set theory since the introduction of the forcing technique. FPNC2018 is devoted to methodological approaches in the study of recent mathematics and focuses on the topics of mathematical philosophy and mathematical practice.

We welcome contributors to reflect on methods in  mathematical philosophy and the study of mathematical practice as well as their eventual applicability to the study of modern set theory. We especially welcome contributions which discuss the viability of the notion of "conceptual change" and "revolution" in the development of mathematics, in particular from the perspective of mathematical practice, or which discuss how to track changes in the development of mathematical knowledge and methods through the analysis of mathematical practices.

Contributions do not have to tackle the forcing technique or set theory necessarily. Rather, the goal of the conference is to share insights from the study of mathematical practices more generally, which eventually could become fruitful for the study of the development of the forcing technique.
