Grit City Think & Drink | Math Stories and Histories: How Historical Narratives Shape Mathematical Ideas

Talks/Lectures
Mathematics has been the source of fascination and struggle for countless students across the world. In recent decades, math textbooks and educators have begun to use historical sidebars and biographies to engage students in the "why" of mathematics, rather than just the "how". This has led to a struggle between cultural stories of mathematical theorems that are told around the world. For example, most students learn that the Pythagorean theorem is due to the Greek mathematician Pythagoras (fl. 520 BCE), even though there's no evidence he knew of it. Meanwhile, independent proofs from India and China are not well known in the West, let alone the use of Pythagorean triangles in ancient Egypt and Babylonia. The way we talk about math matters--students who see only one aspect of the story of mathematics develop a sense of who can do mathematics and for what purpose. In truth, people in all times, places, and cultures have engaged with mathematics in accounting, navigation, construction, recreation, and more. Bringing that truth to today's classrooms unleashes the broader human potential to bring new discoveries and applications to light. Erik Tou is a mathematics historian specializing in the mathematics of the 18th century. His historical interests span a wide range of subjects, from the ancient Mediterranean to the Islamic Golden Age; he is also director of the Euler Archive, and online digital resource for the works of Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler. He has also been known to study the mathematics of juggling from time to time.

Grit City Think & Drink | 'Do I Contradict Myself? Very Well Then.' 'Nothing Rejected, Nothing Abandoned': Multiplicity & Intersectionality - a US Poetic Tradition

Talks/Lectures
In Walt Whitman’s famous poem, “Song of Myself,” the speaker challenges the reader’s understanding of the individual by identifying himself as a “contradiction,” a body containing multiple and sometimes conflicting characteristics, stating “Very well then, I contradict myself, / (I am large, I contain multitudes.)” One hundred and thirty-two years later, poet and scholar Gloria Anzaldúa writes in the foundational Chicanx text, Borderlands/La Frontera, “she operates in a pluralistic mode—nothing thrust out, the good, the bad, and the ugly, nothing rejected, nothing abandoned.” Despite their distance in time, gender, and ethnicity, these two formative American writers represent a tension particular to U.S. literature and culture—how to reconcile individuality and nationalism in a country built on immigration. This talk will explore the role of diversity and multiplicity as a uniquely American literary value through discussion of these writers’ work and their relevance to 21st century U.S. identity politics. UW Tacoma Lecturer Sarah A. Chavez, a mestiza born and raised in the California Central Valley, is the author of the poetry collections, Hands That Break & Scar (Sundress Publications, 2017) and All Day, Talking (dancing girl press, 2014), selections of which were awarded the Susan Atefat Peckham Fellowship. She teaches creative writing with an emphasis on the recognition of intersectionality and the lived experience of the body. Her scholarship and creative publishing both focus on the constructed performance of race/ethnicity, gender, and socio-economic class in the United States.
