Speaker Series Committee
The Speaker Series Committee invites experts in the mathematical sciences to give talks targeted to graduate students and upper-level undergraduate students in mathematics and its applications in other disciplines. One aim of the series is to enrich the mathematical community of the University of Oregon by providing a forum for the discussion of mathematics and its practice from a feminist perspective. Another aim is to spark interest in mathematics, particularly among members of groups who are under-represented in higher levels of mathematics. The diversity of the speakers, in biography, pedagogy, and research, will foster a more inclusive idea of mathematical community

Distinguished Speaker Series
The Speaker Series is able to provide support for one speaker per term to give two talks. Collectively, the talks will cover, as much as possible, material which is accessible to graduate students, material accessible to advanced undergraduates, and issues of importance to females in the mathematical sciences.
