New York Times Article Celebrates Contributions of Pioneering Mathematician who Taught at Bryn Mawr

Posted March 29th, 2012 at 2:12 pm.

In the article “The Mighty Mathematician You’ve Never Heard Of,” The New York Times celebrates mathematician Emmy Noether, who struggled, in the male-dominated academic world of early 20th-century Europe, to pursue groundbreaking work that “undergirds much of today’s vanguard research in physics.”

We’ve certainly heard of Noether at Bryn Mawr, where she taught after fleeing Nazi Germany in 1933 and where, according to writer Natalie Angier, “she said she felt deeply appreciated as she never had been in Germany.”
