For some Sheffield film-screening event news: tomorrow, our friends at the School of Mathematics and Statistics are co-hosting a virtual screening of Secrets of the Surface, a 1-hour documentary about Maryam Mirzakhani, to celebrate International Women in Mathematics Day. It will be taking place at 2pm, but the license will be available until the 19th May.
You can register for a license to watch the film at this link: https://may12.womeninmaths.org/screening-secrets
The department will also be running a Google chat alongside it, to discuss discuss impressions of the film and wider issues around gender bias. You can register for that here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScm_orS5eXX11s_YjxKF6TPMcbPamsZo_Cdq8ttLmy5JCos8Q/viewform?usp=sf_link

On Tuesday, as part of Celebrating Women in Mathematics, we'll be hosting a virtual screening of 'Secrets of the Surface', a documentary about Fields Medallist Maryam Mirzakhani.
Plus, we'll have Dr Alex Best taking over our Twitter account, where he'll be shining a light on gender equality issues in mathematics: twitter.com/mathsatshefuni
