Call for Submissions:

     The Journal of Humanistic Mathematics (http://scholarship.claremont.edu/jhm/) will host a reading of poetry-with-mathematics on Friday January 6, 5-7 PM in Boston’s Hynes Convention Center at the annual Joint Mathematics Meetings (http://jointmathematicsmeetings.org/jmm).  Reading organizers include JHM editors, Gizem Karaali (http://pages.pomona.edu/~gk014747/ ) and Mark Huber (http://www.cmc.edu/pages/faculty/MHuber/), and poetry-math blogger, JoAnne Growney (http://poetrywithmathematics.blogspot.com ). Although the reading is open to all, without pre-selected readers, we will prepare a written program of poets who submit their work by our December 1 deadline. Both mathematician-poets and others who use mathematics in their poems are invited to submit.

    Send (prior to December 1, 2011) via e-mail, to Gizem Karaali (Gizem dot Karaali at pomona dot edu) up to 3 poems that involve mathematics (in content or structure, or both) -- no more than 3 pages -- and a 25 word bio. From these submissions, a written program of titles and bios will be prepared. We anticipate about 5 minutes available for each reader but a large (or small) number of submissions may temper this somewhat. After scheduled readers have completed their presentations, there will be an Open Reading -- and interested persons present (in Room 302 of Boston’s Hynes Convention Center) will be invited to read.
