    The Mathematikado, produced and performed by female students in 1886, parodied Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado to argue that women could master college-level maths. Find out how female students of math and science responded to social critique of their participation in traditionally male fields of study.

    Chair: Dr Amy C. Chambers (Newcastle University)
