On February 26, 2019, Stephanie Dick, Assistant Professor of History and Sociology of Science at the University of Pennsylvania, gave a public lecture titled "After Math: Reasoning, Proving, and Computing in the Postwar United States" as part of the History of Science lecture series.

Myles W. Jackson, Professor in the School of Historical Studies, introduced Dick, who introduced different visions of the computer as a mathematical agent, the software that was crafted to animate those imaginings, and the novel practices and materialities of mathematical knowledge-making that emerged in tandem.
