Reading Lists for Annual General Meetings

These lists—composed chiefly of essays in Persuasions and Persuasions On-Line—were constructed before each AGM for the pleasure and profit of those considering the themes ahead of time.  We’re keeping them here as a way of extending that pleasure and that profit.  You can also read papers from these conferences in Persuasions and Persuasions On-Line for the year of each AGM.
