Mathe matical Cultures 1 is the first of three on mathem atics\n as culture and mathematics in culture . It is organized by a\n research network fun ded by the Arts and Humanities Research\n Cou ncil under the 'science in culture' highlight noti ce, with\n additional support from the London Mathematical Society.\n

\nThe f irst conference will gather research that explores and\n maps the variety of and connections am ong contemporary\n mathematical cultures. The se can be research cultures, but may\n also i nclude practitioner cultures (e.g. among engineers ,\n economists, social scientists, etc.) and mathematical cultures\n among instructor and student groups\n (e.g. primary/secondary/tert iary teachers, school pupils,\n mathematics s tudents at all levels). The project will not\n invite contributions on historically or cultura lly remote\n mathematical cultures except as these illuminate contemporary\n mathematical culture in developed societies.\n
