History of Programming Languages Seminar (Felleisen)
In this seminar course, we will study themes in the history of programming languages. The primary goal is to understand the discipline as it exits today and how its major themes evolved. Initially, the seminar will focus on the theme of formal description of programming languages, including syntax and various flavors of semantics. The choice of other themes will depend on students' preferences.

A seminar course given by Matthias Felleisen at Northeastern. Many interesting topics are covered, and the bibliography is worth exploring.
