AWM Panel Discussion
Abstract: Ever wonder what the AWM is, and why we need it? Come join the UIC AWM chapter for an oral history discussion about mathematics and women. This event is open to all, in particular, visitors from other universities and departments are encouraged to attend.

The panelists are Bhama Srinivasan (UIC), Jeanne LaDuke (DePaul), Anne Leggett (Loyola), Alexandra Bellow (Northwestern). One more panelist, a contemporary woman mathematician, is to be confirmed. The panel will be moderated by Steve Hurder (UIC).

Jeanne LaDuke is a historian of mathematics and the author (with Judy Green) of "Pioneering Women in American Mathematics: pre-1940 Ph.D's". Anne Leggett is the long-time editor of the AWM Newsletter and the editor (with Bettye Anne Case) of "Complexities: Women In Mathematics". Alexandra Bellow is a distinguished mathematician who was a Professor at Northwestern University from 1967 until 1996.
