DESCRIPTION:American mathematics was experiencing growing pains in the 192
0s. It had looked to Europe at least since the 1890s when many Americans h
ad gone abroad to pursue their advanced mathematical studies. It was anxi
ous to assert itself on the international—that is\, at least at this mom
ent in time\, European—mathematical scene. How\, though\, could the Amer
icans change the European perception from one of apprentice/master to one
of mathematical equals? How could Europe\, especially Germany but to a les
ser extent France\, Italy\, England\, and elsewhere\, come fully to sense
the development of the mathematical United States? If such changes could
be effected at all\, they would likely involve American and European mathe
maticians in active dialogue\, working shoulder to shoulder in Europe and
in the United States\, and publishing side by side in journals on both sid
es of the Atlantic. This talk will explore one side of this “equation”
: European mathematicians and their experiences in the United States in th
e 1920s.\nSpeakers:\nKaren Hunger Parshall (University of Virginia)
