August 2014 Institute
Workshop:When Math and Creative Writing Collide
Presented by: Anna Radlowski
Location: IT226
Time: Tuesday, May 19 10:15am
Max number of participants: 25

A presentation on my experience teaching HP 200: Honors Seminar, a class in which we explored how writers have used theoretical math as a literary device in stories. From the logic-driven plot in Alice in Wonderland, the “some infinities are larger than other infinities” metaphor in The Fault in Our Stars, we’ll discuss the math and literature examined in the class, as well as my experiences teaching in the Honor’s Program. There is no math prerequisite for this presentation. For more information, here’s a video trailer for the course: https://youtube/toYgrCJIPqo
