Mathematical readers in the early modern world
 
Thursday 18 and Friday 19 December 2014: 10am–5pm
All Souls College, Oxford
 
How was mathematical writing consumed: read, used, responded to, and otherwise engaged with, in the early modern period? What was distinctive about mathematical reading, as against the reading of other kinds of technical writing, or as contrasted with the reading of more general types of prose? Were mathematical books handled or annotated in distinctive ways? Was  mathematical reading associated with a distinctive set of locations? How, where and when did readers learn the (presumptively specialized) skills of mathematical reading? These questions will be the subject of this two-day workshop, to be held in All Souls College, Oxford.

A limited number of places are available for observers. The cost will be £20, and will cover attendance at the conference sessions, with tea and coffee. Unfortunately accommodation cannot be provided for observers.
