Practice and Cultures of Mathematics

In recent years, researchers have become interested in the study of mathematics as a human subject with different practices and cultures. This research has been embedded in the Philosophy of Mathematical Practice community, but is broader in the sense that it is interested in the study of mathematical practices and cultures independently of whether there is an interaction with traditional philosophical questions (such as epistemology or ontology). The Practice and Cultures of Mathematics community understands itself as closely associated to the Association for the Philosophy of Mathematical Practice.

The research on Practice and Cultures of Mathematics is not coordinated by an institution, but is rather defined in terms of are core group of researchers who are related by joint research projects and who meet regularly at events related to the study of mathematical practice and cultures. The researchers of this community are very grateful that IASCUD agreed to host this website for them to document the activities of the research community.
