Event description

Description

This Conference on SWARM will provide an opportunity for scholars, educators, and students to share and learn about the fascinating culture of math in Tokugawa Japan (1603-1868), also known as wasan. Of particular interest will be the phenomenon of sangaku, colorful wooden tablets inscribed with geometrical problems that were hung in shrines and temples throughout the country. We are hoping to foster a community with broad interests in wasan and a diverse collection of viewpoints to contribute to its study and dissemination, and to encourage collaborative relationships across disciplinary boundaries.
