Professor Ricardo Nemirovsky Inaugural Lecture - Making and Mathematics: Conversations with Materials and Diagrams

Lecture Theatre 1, Brooks building , Refreshments will be held on the Spanish Steps (Brooks building)

Join ESRI in celebrating the outstanding achievements of Professor Ricardo Nemirovsky.

With a vast background in mathematics and its cultural influence, Ricardo will discuss his his interpretation of two significant publications - Bodies and Imaginaries and Conversations with Materials - and contemplate the philosophical debates surrounding them.

How do we explain the inexistence of mathematical entities? How is it possible to converse with things that do not speak, do not wait for their turns to respond? These are some of the questions which Ricardo will be exploring.

An exhibition of Ricardo's work will also be held by the Spanish Steps to celebrate his outstanding achievements.
