The A.M.U. Commission on the History of Mathematics in Africa (AMUCHMA), formed in 1986, has the following objectives:
a. to improve communication among those interested in the history of mathematics in Africa;
b. to promote active cooperation between historians, mathematicians, archaeologists, ethnographers, sociologists, etc., doing research in, or related to, the history of mathematics in Africa;
c. to promote research in the history of mathematics in Africa, and the publication of its results, in order to contribute to the demystification of the still-dominant Eurocentric bias in the historiography of mathematics;
d. to cooperate with any and all organizations pursuing similar objectives.
The main activities of AMUCHMA are as follows:
a. publication of a newsletter;
b. setting up of a documentation centre;
c. organization of lectures on the history of mathematics at national, regional, continental and international congresses and conferences.
AMUCHMA's contract with SIDA-SAREC (Sweden) for publication of the first 24 issues has ended (also see THANKS TO SIDA-SAREC). Financial support is necessary.
