Reading Mathematical Texts


Organiser : Agathe Keller (CNRS, CHSA, SPHERE)

This seminar is organized around a presentation of a primary source and the problems it raises, followed by a reading of this published and translated source. A session of the seminar can last up to 3 hours, and is conducted by experienced researchers, doctoral students or even master’s students.
This seminar has a declension in the form of the cuneiform text reading seminar for those interested in cuneiform writing.
