Graphic narrative: telling stories through pictures... to talk about maths and academia
Series: Mathematics Colloquium
Location: ONLINE
Presenter: Constanza Rojas-Molina, UCergy, France

n this talk we will review some recent projects that aim to use graphic narrative to approach complex questions in mathematics: how to bring maths closer to people, and how do we make maths, and in general academia, more welcoming to women and other minorities. We will present the blog The RAGE of the Blackboard, a platform to reflect on academia and about the role of women in mathematics, and the Twitter challenges #mathyear and #Noethember, that look to engage people with mathematics with drawings. With this, we hope to invite reflection on how pictures and stories are central to the art of doing and communicating mathematics.
