New journal: Journal of Humanistic Mathematics

This Journal is in many ways a successor to the Humanistic Mathematics Network Journal (1987-2004), created and edited by Alvin White. As with HMNJ, our goal is to create a platform for both formal and informal inquiries about mathematics as a human endeavor.

Historical, pedagogical, psychological, and sociological aspects all form different facets of humanistic mathematics. There are several journals devoted to studying these various aspects through disciplinary approaches; we hope with this Journal to provide a (multidisciplinary / interdisciplinary / transdisciplinary) venue for work that targets a wider mathematical community. Our intention is to encourage communication and discussion across the disciplinary boundaries.

To this end, we will publish peer-reviewed research and survey articles, editor-reviewed works that reflect personal explorations of what it means to do mathematics or to be a mathematician, articles on mathematics in popular culture, and reviews of books which focus on humanistic aspects of mathematics. Finally, we welcome creative works (fiction, poetry, visual arts) that display in more ways than one the humanistic dimensions of mathematics.

The first issue of the Journal of Humanistic Mathematics is now available at the journal website at http://journal-of-humanistic-mathematics.org.
