Join us in Oxford Mathematics on 27th February 2020 for a talk and discussion celebrating the Bodleian Libraries' release of interviews by Georgina Ferry of some of Oxford’s female computing pioneers.

Some remarkable women shaped Oxford computing: Dorothy Hodgkin won the Nobel Prize for work on insulin; Susan Hockey pioneered digital humanities; Shirley Carter, Linda Hayes and Joan Walsh got the pioneering software company NAG off the ground in 1970; and female operators and programmers were at the heart of the early large-scale computing efforts powering 20th-century science.

5.00pm: Professor June Barrow-Green - Hidden histories: Oxford’s female computing pioneers
5.45pm: Panel discussion chaired by science writer Georgina Ferry and featuring some of the the pioneers themselves
