    The talk analyses how the very techniques of force, of pushback, of sociality and outright resistance are dismissed within a global and comparative frame of resistance and asks how these processes may be re-narrated in a global, comparative frame of not only analysis, but struggles for justice.

    Skip Garibaldi will tell the story of how a journalist, two mathematicians and a statistician teamed up and used mathematics to identify people who were using the lottery as an adjunct to their illicit activities. The analysis combined old and new mathematics with on-the-ground detective work. The resulting series of journal and newspaper articles led to arrests and changes in state policy and contributed to the resignation of the head of the Florida lottery. Still, many questions remain to be investigated.Garibaldi is a mathematician known for his work on algebraic groups, especially exceptional groups such as E8; the book Cohomological invariants in Galois cohomology with Alexander Merkurjev and Jean-Pierre Serre; and his work on the lottery, which led to changes in state policy and arrests.
