Pamela Harris Keynote Address
Title: "
Coloring Maps: The Story of a Traveling Mathematician"
Dr. Pamela Harris,
Assistant Professor of Mathematics, Williams College

Abstract: A problem that fascinates me is coloring the states on a map making sure that neighboring states (those that are next to each other) get colored in different colors. Once we color a map we might then wonder if we could have done this with less colors. This very interesting math problem has a long and rich history that we will explore in this talk. Along this historical journey, I will share stories on how being a mathematician has helped me, and can help you too, travel the world!
