Classical Howe dualities provide a representation theoretical framework for
classical invariant theory.  In the classical Howe duality,
$GL_n(\mathbb{C})$ is dual to $GL_k(\mathbb{C})$ when acting on the
polynomial ring in the variables $x_{i,j}$ where $1\leq i\leq n$ and $1\leq
j\leq k$.  In this talk,  I will introduce a multiset partition algebra,
$MP_k(n)$, as the Howe dual to the symmetric group $S_n$.
