Mathematics in Narratives of Geodetic Expeditions

This event will take place on Zoom

 
As part of the Measuring the Earth project the Art of Judgment research cluster is glad to announce its new discussion group, which will explore new ways to frame the history of geodesy and, in general, representations of the globe and the geosphere in an interdisciplinary perspective. 
 
To start the discussion we will discuss Mary Terrall, “Mathematics in Narratives of Geodetic Expeditions,” Isis 97, no. 4 (December 1, 2006): 683–99, https://doi.org/10.1086/509950. You can download the paper here.
