Posterminaries features light commentary and observations relating to anything of interest to the MRS Bulletin readership. Content can range from puzzles and poetry to articles “replete with rich irony and subtle allusion,” as stated by one contributor [MRS Bulletin XIX (6) 72 (1994)]. Created by Elton Kaufmann, former editor of MRS Bulletin, “Posterminaries” means “after the end.”

Posterminaries columns are available in our print edition of MRS Bulletin and for free in the online version of MRS Bulletin. You do not have to be a subscriber to MRS Bulletin to access this content—it is freely available to anyone with Internet access.
