Borges and the Sciences symposium at Purdue

Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986) and the way his work intersects fiction, mathematics, and physics are examined during an event Wednesday at Purdue.

This interdisciplinary symposium includes a mathematician and a physicist who have already published extensively about Borges's literature and its relation with their disciplines. In addition, two internationally renowned Borges scholars will also participate.

More information about the event is HERE. Information about Dr. Guillermo Martinez and his book Borges and Mathematics, published by Purdue University Press, is HERE.

A fiction reading with Dr. Martinez also is scheduled for Thursday, October 4 at 7:30 p.m. in the Krannert Auditorium (Room 140).
