All seminars take place at the society, 1154 Boylston St., Boston, MA 02215, and commence at 5:15 PM. As always, the seminar consists with discussion of a pre-circulated paper. After a brief introduction by Ms. Kopelson, a commentary by Prof. Bremer, and a rebuttal by Ms. Kopelson, the session will be opened to general discussion by the audience.
After the meeting the Society will serve a light buffet supper. Reservations are suggested but not required to attend the seminar. They are required to attend the supper so that numbers may be given to the caterer.

The event is free and open to the public. There is a charge to subscribe to the papers for the season.
