Author:Kathryn Mann
Description: Pictures of math graduate students with word-bubbles showing "the kind of math that's right" for them. Submit your own group snapshots and subfields. Inspired by an observation that a flyer from the American Mathematical Society (AMS) reinforced sexist stereotypes, with "male students listing pure math topics, and the female students having 'applied math,' 'actuarial science,' and 'math education.'" Mann, a graduate student in her final year of study at the University of Chicago, also provides papers and slides about her research into diffeomorphism groups of manifolds and representation spaces.
