In her talk, Patricia Marks will explore how 19th-century feminist movements were portrayed by male caricaturists and editors in satirical magazines like Puck and Punch. These caricatures depicted the “New Woman” challenging societal norms by advocating for education, independence, and participation in traditionally male-dominated fields. Despite initially aiming to undermine women’s equality efforts, the portrayals shifted toward a more lighthearted view, reflecting changing attitudes toward gender roles.

In his talk, Dennis Marks will discuss how matrix representations of geometric algebras over real numbers correlate with various numerical systems based on space-time metrics. It will highlight how quantum information can be accurately depicted in space-times without time dimensions, while those with multiple time dimensions lack coherence. The recursive generation over Z2 suggests implications for combatting oncogenes and conflict resolution using “Marks’s Matrix Method”, impacting political, philosophical, and theological realms.
