Michael J. Barany is a historian of modern science and mathematics and a postdoctoral fellow in the Society of Fellows at Dartmouth College. In his work, he attempts to find the connections between the dust on blackboards, the line items of budgets, the words in letters and journals, the conversations over tea and coffee, and the seemingly eternal truths that mathematicians spend their time creating and using in modern societies.(2017)
