About Emily Redman

Emily Redman specializes in the history of science, with a focus on the 20th century United States. As of summer 2013he is currently revising her Ph.D. dissertation,“The National Science Foundation and a Comparative Study of Precollege Mathematics and Science Education Reform in the United States, 1950-2000,” at the University of California, Berkeley. She examines how the federal government has been historically involved in reforming mathematics curriculum for the K-12 classroom. Redman has worked since 2007 with the Regional Oral History Office at UC Berkeley, conducting oral history interviews with prominent scientists and helping lead the Oral History Summer Institute. Redman was awarded the Edward Teller Fellowship in Science and National Security Studies for the U.S. Department of Energy, where she worked to develop educational historical resources in 2009-2010. She has also received both conference paper awards and teaching awards from the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the University of California. Redman’s next anticipated projects will look at the cultural history of the New Math and the ways in which educational programming has brought mathematics instruction to television.
