Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences 2014

 

I was honored to be one of the speakers at the Annual Meeting of the Canadian Society for the History and Philosophy of Mathematics held with the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences. Once again, I was speaking of various regional differences in the Soviet mathematics education.  The comments from the attendees were extremely helpful!

The program and the list of abstracts – including mine – can be found here:

The congress took place close to the Niagara Falls at Brock University in the city of St. Catharines (May 25th – 27th).

After the Meeting was over I took a detour to see the Falls.

The first thing that I saw upon exiting the university campus was a demolition site

followed by a ‘haunted’ – or just abandoned – house

The flowers along the side of the Niagara River smelled wonderful before the rain has started
