A Vanderbilt professor delivered a lecture earlier this month at a major mathematician meeting that described college math education as "white" and "cisheteropatriarchal."

Luis Leyva, assistant professor of mathematics at Vanderbilt University, delivered a lecture titled, "Undergraduate Mathematics Education as a White, Cisheteropatriarchal Space and Opportunities for Structural Disruption to Advance Queer of Color Justice," according to the website of Joint Mathematics Meeting.

The lecture consisted of two parts. The first half of the lecture showed findings from Leyva's research about the "educational experiences of 39 undergraduate queer and trans students of color pursuing STEM majors across historically White and minority-serving universities in the United States."

Leyva's lecture abstract states the "findings depict how Black, Latin*, and Asian QT (Queer-Transgender) students' narratives of experience reflect forms of intersectionality, or instances of oppression and resistance at intersecting systems of white supremacy and cisheteropatriarchy."

As a white, male cis whatever the f/ck these freaks are calling us now, I can say that I felt "oppressed" by Calculus at UT, too. When is the lecture on my behalf?

There is nothing in the universe more black & white, hard cold reality than math. It doesn't care what you feel, it doesn't care how hard it is to come up with or deal with, it just is what it is. If math is anti-whatever they want to complain about, then maybe what they want to complain about is, well, reality, and they are just upset that they can't just will a new one into existence.

Lmao!

How are educated people so ignorant? Do they get how huge Arabic mathematical concepts are and that they are the basis of a lot of modern Western math? Heck the basic numerals we use are Arabic!

Though I guess he has a point that ME culture isn't super tolerant of the rainbow

Good gawd. This person should be kicked out of academics, forced to return his degrees, and apologize to the world for how stupid he is.

Tucker may have a field day with this story. I may be laughing for several days if he tackles this.

Hell, I'm laughing already.

Words like that are proof that someone has spent far too much time inside the "education" system. Pure idiocy.

In his next lecture he probably completely contradicted himself and discussed how math originated in the Middle East and was just appropriated by whites

If we've reached the point where this is an actual worry and being written about by a college professor, then i guess we've solved all the other problems in the world, right?

Dr. Leyva is a 2020 Postdoctoral Fellow with the National Academy of Education and Spencer Foundation. He was recently distinguished with the 2021 Faculty/Staff Award for Equity, Diversity & Inclusion in Vanderbilt University-Peabody College. Leyva's contributions to the field of mathematics education have been recognized as a 2019 honoree in Lathisms (an online showcase of Latinx mathematics education researchers, American Mathematical Society & Mathematical Association of America), the recipient of the 2018 Early Career Publication Award from the Research in Mathematics Education special interest group of the American Educational Research Association, and awardee of the 2015 Dissertation Fellowshipfrom the National Academy of Education and Spencer Foundation.

Dr. Leyva is the director of the PRISM (Power, Resistance & Identity in STEM Education) Research Lab at Peabody College.

The lab's research serves to hold an "intersectional prism" up to historically marginalized student's narratives of experience to illuminate and disrupt multidimensional forms of oppression in undergraduate STEM education.
What a cluster of gobbledygook.

This is why they hate math. It won't bend to their reality. It is what is. It doesn't care about your feelings or pronouns. Therefore it's white supremacist and must be destroyed. Imagine a world with out math.

So does this mean I can claim math as a white hetero male culture and if any other people attempt to use math that they are appropriating my culture?


(Hopefully they won't look up the Arabic origins of any mathematics. It might just undermine their creative fan fiction. )

There's the problem: this dude isn't a mathematician. He's in the College of Education.

As someone who's taught for 20 years and has an Ed.D., I'm pretty sure colleges of education belong on in the heap of useless academic BS.

I am sure glad that Srinivasan Ramanujan did not think that because he was poor and nonwhite that he would not be accepted as a mathematician.

The beauty of math is that it does not care about your thoughts and feelings.

So I need to get this to Texas Instruments and demand a share of the profits:

Call it the TI1619 and it has different modes and buttons than your normal calculator. Before you can enter any numbers, you have to input your pronouns, then enter your race, and then any other mitigating identifying factors (this will need to be connected to the internet for constant updates, as this list is always changing). Then depending on the information given, either it gives you the answer for the problem typed in (for a white Cismale), or it just asks you what you want the answer to be, and gives it back to you (for any oppressed group).

Charge $400 each and all universities will require it for all their students as part of their DEI programs.

All of my shortcomings and failings are your fault. My mighty and righteous efforts cannot overcome your oppression, albeit subconscious. I call upon the world to wage war against you and everyone who looks like you.

It matters not if 1+2=3 or 2+2=3, the words I speak are true and correct no matter what you think you see with your eyes.

Now we can all see how past atrocities occured. We no longer have to wonder how thousands, millions of people were able to stand idly by while the world around them was burned to the ground.

We can simply look at our neighbors and look in the mirror to witness the inaction necessary to allow the plunder.

Exactly - It's the same thing with Basketball. Either you can put a ball thru a hoop or you can't.
Whites aren't represented in college basketball and the NBA not because of some racial bias.
