Boston Immigration and Urban History Seminar
The Boston Immigration and Urban History Seminar is an academic forum for local scholars as well as members of the general public to discuss all aspects of American immigration and urban history and culture. Programs are not confined to Massachusetts topics.
Most seminar meetings revolve around the discussion of a precirculated paper. Sessions open with remarks from the essayist and an assigned commentator, after which the discussion is opened to the floor. After each session, the Society serves a light buffet supper.
All are welcome to participate in the seminars at no charge; an RSVP is required. You should, however, subscribe to the series if you wish to receive advance copies of the papers that will be discussed. The modest subscription fee for the series also underwrites the suppers that accompany each program.
To RSVP: if you do not require an advance copy of a paper and wish to leave reservations only, you may phone 617-646-0568. Please give your name, the name of the seminar you would like to attend, and the number of guests
