Every spring since 2006, a public lecture series has been held in Portland, Oregon, inspired by the fundamental belief that mathematics is a human construction, thus mathematics cannot be separated from its historical, cultural, social, and political contexts. Speakers from the first five years have written the 14 essays here, some of them based on their lectures, and some not. They cover mathematics and politics of knowledge, ethnomathematics, learning to see mathematically, and mathematics education for social justice.
