WKU student gives talk at 2011 Bridges Conference in Coimbra, Portugal.

Dr. Bruce Kessler, associate dean of Ogden College of Science and Engineering, and Tressa Tullis, a math and education major, attended the 2011 Bridges Conference in Coimbra, Portugal. The conference is dedicated to the connections between math, art, music, architecture and culture. Tullis, a SKyTeach student and the illustrator of the most recent issues of Operation Comics, was a conference presenter on July 27.  

The Bridges Conferences, running annually since 1998, brings together practicing mathematicians, scientists, artists, educators, musicians, writers, computer scientists, sculptors, dancers, weavers, and model builders in a lively atmosphere of exchange and mutual encouragement. Important components of these conferences, in addition to formal presentations, are hands-on workshops, gallery displays of visual art, working sessions with artists who are crossing the mathematics-arts boundaries, and musical/theatrical events in the evenings. The Conference features talks and artworks presenting the latest ideas in mathematics and the arts from experts around the world.
