Future directions for MGGG
Thanks to overwhelming demand, the Tufts Summer School will be the first in a series of regional trainings. Each one will include significant discussion of local issues.
Sites planned for trainings over the next year:
- location: Madison, WI
- dates: October 12-15, 2017
- lead site organizer: Jordan Ellenberg
- North Carolina
- location: Durham, NC
- dates: November 2017
- lead site organizer: Jonathan Mattingly
- location: Austin, TX
- location: Bay Area
If you have relevant skills (civil rights law and history, GIS) to help run a minicourse at a regional site and especially if you have strong local knowledge of redistricting issues, please be in touch. Dates and further information will be posted here when available.
More broadly, we are assembling a team of mathematicians, lawyers, statisticians, and active citizens of all stripes to work on practical metrics and solutions for gerrymandering in advance of the 2020 U.S. Census.
