More About the Author

Slava Gerovitch is a historian of science and technology, teaching cultural history of mathematics at MIT. He was born in Lyubertsy near Moscow in 1963, and moved to the United States in 1992 to get his PhD at MIT. His book "From Newspeak to Cyberspeak: A History of Soviet Cybernetics" (2002) was awarded the honorable mention from the Wayne S. Vucinich Book Prize committee of the American Association for the Advancement of Slavic Studies for an outstanding monograph in Russian, Eurasian, or East European studies. He recently published "Soviet Space Mythologies: Public Images, Private Memories, and the Making of a Cultural Identity," a study of professional and cultural identities of Soviet cosmonauts and engineers, and "Voices of the Soviet Space Program: Cosmonauts, Soldiers, and Engineers Who Took the USSR into Space," a collection of his interviews with veterans of the Soviet space program. His current research project is on the social history of the mathematics community in the Soviet Union in the second half of the twentieth century. He lives with two sons in Natick, Mass., and, when nobody is watching, writes poetry.
