Kirby Live!

I am giving a talk at the American Mathematical Society meeting at Boston College, the weekend of April 5-6.

My talk is on Perspective, Painting, Publishing, and Patronage: Joshua Kirby and Brook Taylor. It will be aimed at historians of mathematics and focus on a comparison of the content and discourse between Brook Taylor’s Linear Perspective and Joshua Kirby’s Method of Perspective.
