Keyfitz Lecture in Mathematics and the Social Sciences
Overview
The Fields Institute hosts this series of public lectures on the topic of mathematics and the social sciences. These lectures are of interest to the university community as well as to individuals involved in public administration, economics, health policy, social and political science. The purpose of the series is both to inform the public of some of the ways quantitative methods are being used to design solutions to societal problems, and to encourage dialogue between mathematical and social scientists.
The lectures are held annually. Lecturers are selected by a distinguished international committee consisting of both mathematicians and social scientists. All lectures are open to the public and everyone is welcome.
