Each Wednesday we meet at 8pm in the snug at Mahaffy's to discuss a paper we agreed to circulate and read in the week before. It is an informal session in which the only expectation is that everyone participate. If you would like to be on the mailing list for this, please send mail to

Some day soon the more complete list of papers we've looked at will appear below.
