The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) established the Emmy Noether Lectures to honor women who have made fundamental and sustained contributions to the mathematical sciences. These one-hour expository lectures are presented at the Joint Mathematics Meetings each January. Emmy Noether was one of the great mathematicians of her time, someone who worked and struggled for what she loved and believed in. Her life and work remain a tremendous inspiration.
This commemorative booklet presents profiles of the women who have presented Noether Lectures since the inception of the lecture series in 1980. AWM hopes that, through these lectures, the women mathematicians of our time will be a source of inspiration to all mathematicians.
