SWEET LO "Lolita in America" is a conference designed to analyze the influence that Vladimir Nabokov's "Lolita" has had in this country 50 years after its publication here. Following the book's first publication in Paris in 1955, it was rejected for three years by American editors who believed its content was too salacious for print. Panelists include writer Ellen Pifer, author of "Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita: A Casebook" (Oxford); a literary contributor to Le Monde, Lila Zanganeh, and Nabokov's editor through the last decade of his life, Fred Hills. A screening of Stanley Kubrick's 1962 film adaptation concludes the symposium. Advance registration is required. Friday, 10 a.m.-10 p.m., Tishman Auditorium, Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall, 66 W. 12th St., between Fifth and Sixth avenues, 212-229-5630 , free. RSVP required to
