The second event of "Women in mathematical sciences" at the department for mathematics in Lund will take place on the 8th of March, the international women's day! Barbro Grevholm, who was organizing a network for women in mathematics starting in 1990 will talk about her experience. After her talk there will be some discussion and finger food.

Barbro Grevholm: Women and Mathematics - continuity and change in networking 

Abstract: The network Kvinnor och matematik (Women and mathematics) started in 1990 and initially it had rather humble goals. The goals were extended and sharpened at the fourth conference in Uppsala in 1999 and then contained several measurable goals. The last sign of life from the network as such came in 2011 when the conference proceedings from the seventh conference in Gothenburg was ready. In the proceedings I concluded that the interest in gender issues and research in that area was decreasing and few such studies had been done in Sweden the last years. An extended international paper about the network was published in 2007 and an evaluation of the activities was carried out and published in 2017 by Grevholm & Rensaa. Facing a new start of a network Women and mathematics leaves room for many questions. In what ways can a new network Women and mathematics be inspired by earlier experiences? What new can be added and what can be kept from earlier activities? What justifies a network and what actions can it devote itself to?
