Interdisciplinary Courses, Positions, PhD, In Italy
Contributed by Morgan Fritz on 25 Mar 2014
"The paper elaborates on my experience with interdisciplinary courses between mathematics and a number of subjects (art, architecture,...) over a number of years and discuss some difficulties that have arisen and a few proposal for actions. Some of these themes are general by nature, as well as some of the actions that can be undertaken. First of all I would like to say that these academic activities started as a personal experience more than 30 years ago. For many years I was (and I still am) officially a full professor in Math and non-officially I worked on the relationships between mathematics, art, architecture, biology, physics, literature, cinema. At a certain point of my activity my work on art and math was recognized as official work in mathematics. " -Michele Emmer Dipartimento di Matematica, Università di Roma "La Sapienza"
