This workshop proposes to explore the role of marriage and other domestic partnerships in the lived practice and constructed memory of mathematics. Though mathematicians are often imagined as the quintessential solitary researchers, many have managed the daily routines of a mathematical career through partnership with a spouse who was intimately involved in their working life or the posthumous construction of their legacy. Whilst marriage is certainly not the unique social form such collaboration can take, it does offer an especially clear window on the unstable boundaries dividing labour into the intellectual and the domestic, the masculinized and the feminized, the credited and the unacknowledged.

This workshop is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required: please register here.
