Work in progress
My current project explores how the Soviet mathematics community creatively adapted to various political, institutional, and cultural pressures. It examines the functioning of a “parallel social infrastructure,” which included informal study groups, correspondence and evening courses, specialized mathematical schools, alternative employment opportunities, and a network open research seminars, such the Gelfand seminar.
