         - a multilingual math history mailing list -

  http://mathforum.org/epigone/historia_matematica/

A virtual forum for scholarly discussion of the history of
mathematics among professionals and non-professionals with

preferably with accompanying abstracts in English, are also 
welcome.

All traditional and scholarly aspects of the history may be
discussed, and in addition such topics as:
              
 - history of the history of mathematics
 - current trends in the history of mathematics
 - history of mathematics outside Europe
 - ethnomathematics
 - pedagogical issues
 - origin of mathematical terms/symbols
 - biographies and obituaries
 - bibliographical references (databases)
 - announcements and reviews of new books, articles,
     preprints, websites, ...
 - advertisements of conferences, meetings, jobs, ...

The list is unmoderated and closed. To read more about it
