New research project at IZWT

The German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) is funding a new project of professors Dr. Volker Remmert and Dr. Thomas Heinze that is called "Politische Umbrüche und Disziplinenwandel. Mathematik in Deutschland, 1920-1960" .

The aim of this project is to find out who and what had which kind of influence on mathematics in the time frame that is analysed. In this context, the researchers also want to mapp and analyse the development of mathematics at German universities from a perspective of history of science and sociology of science. As the results of those anylses will be openly accessible, the project might create a research tool that can be used for further research as well. 

You can find more information in the press release (German) of the University of Wuppertal.

Golden Memories - photo app created by Carmen Pérez González

Carmen Pérez González - photografic historian and temporary lecturer of the historic seminar at the university of Wuppertal - has created an app that is called Golden Memories and enables people to look at history from a photografic perspective. People of all ages can upload (family) photos into the app, sort and subscribe them and thus find out more about (their own) history or train their memories. The original thought was to improve living conditions of dementia patients who may get back a part of their lost memories - even if only for a short time.

The app will be released in May and you can find more information about Carmen Pérez González and her ambitious and pioneering project in the press release of the university of Wuppertal.
