Maths Poems Launch Event

7 November, 18:30 - 21:00



Staff Lounge and Seminar Room 2.04, Fry Building, Bristol University, BS8 1TH

Join us to celebrate the launch of Maths Poems, a collection of poems that blur the boundary between mathematics and poetry!

Mathematics and poetry are often thought of as polar opposites: one the realm of rational and logical thought and the other of the expressive and subjective. The Maths Poems project sought to break down this division and explore what the two disciplines have in common and how they can influence, inform and enhance each other.

Maths Poems will be screening a brilliant video that Kate Ashley of the School of Mathematics made about the project and wonderful maths poets will be reading some of their poems, as well as sharing how the project has influenced their practices.

  • Drinks and nibbles
  • Books to buy!

The event will be held in an accessible space but please do get in touch if you have any questions or specific accessibility needs – we want all to feel welcome and able to attend!
