Occasional Papers

From time to time, the Maguire Center publishes papers -- some works in progress, reworkings of Public Scholar addresses, or invited papers from conference speakers. In addition to print versions (published in the years indicated below), we plan to publish these as PDFs, as well. (To read a PDF document, you need to download a free Adobe Acrobat reader to your computer.)
