Skip to comments.College math a ‘white, cisheteropatriarchal space,’ Vanderbilt professor says at major conference

An education professor delivered a lecture in early January at a major mathematician meeting that described college math as “white” and “cisheteropatriarchal.”
“Undergraduate Mathematics Education as a White, Cisheteropatriarchal Space and Opportunities for Structural Disruption to Advance Queer of Color Justice” was the full title of the lecture given by Luis Leyva, associate professor of mathematics education at the Peabody College of Education and Human Development at Vanderbilt University.
Leyva delivered the lecture Jan. 4 in Boston at the Joint Mathematics Meetings 2023. The summit is the “largest mathematics gathering in the world,” according to its website.
“Cisheteropatriarchal” is a term in ethnic studies referring to “a system of male, straight, conforming-to-assigned sex system power,” teacher and curriculum designer R. Tolteka Cuauhtin told the Los Angeles Times in a 2019 article.
Leyva’s “findings depict[ed] how Black, Latin*, and Asian QT [queer and transgender] students’ narratives of experience reflect forms of intersectionality, or instances of oppression and resistance,” according to his lecture’s abstract.
The Fix left Leyva a voicemail asking for a comment or brief interview on the lecture via email or phone call. His email address was not publicly available. Leyva did not return the call.

And the Arabs gave the world algebra.
Good lord I wish these idiots would just get over themselves! They are looking and sounding like wacked out crazies!
The math department should disown him.
Seems like stupid is taught at vanderbilt.
It’s just so “supercalifrgelisticexpealidocious”!
It’s a “Mary Poppins World!”
"Joint", eh? Has this education professor been smoking one?
“If I throw enough prefixes on, I’ll impress all my alphabet people friends.”
then by all means, feel free to create yer own system...
The underlying assertion is that logic is somehow unfriendly to the interests of women and people of color.
Is that not more or less a slur on women and people of color?
(I know, using logic to defend logic is circular reasoning — I can’t help myself — I’m just a white guy)
Why stop there? Why not “malepalecisheteropatriarchal”?
I find white and “pale” very offensive. So...
Say that three times fast. I dare you!
amend the above to read women, gays and people of color ... and Vikings (just thought they needed a boost up now that raping and pillaging has gone out of style).
I am sick to death of such idiots, and ashamed that they are academic colleagues.
“The math department should disown him.”
Are you kidding? The Dean of the Math Department is requiring this of all his professors!
“ that described college math as “white” and “cisheteropatriarchal.””
So in other words the guy can’t hack it.
I say the prof deserves a 10% pay raise to .23 a month salary !!!
Then wait and watch it spew some choice white” “cisheteropatriarchal” math.
( snikker /-)
Okay, so then I’m thinking I would NOT be racist to hold up a sign saying BLACK LIVES DON’T COUNT since counting is math and math is whatever Luis said (I can’t retain all that leftist jargon in my logical brain).
That just doesn’t add up!
