Re: MLA session, New Orleans (fwd)

Societies that wish to present two programs at the MLA get one of
them bumped to the undesirable last day of the conference. This time
we got the last, worst time of all. Please arrange your travel plans
in order to attend; we need you! New Orleans is a wonderful city,
worth spending an extra night in if you can. Perhaps we can all have
a couple of drinks after the session. --Chaz.

Here's how it will appear in the program:


793. Imitating Nabokov

1:45-3:00 p.m., Rampart, Sheraton

Program arranged by the International Vladimir Nabokov Society.
Presiding: Charles D. Nicol, Indiana State Univ.

1. "Lolita by Lamplight: LO'S DIARY Revisited," Ernst Machen, Univ.
of California, Berkeley
2. "Revisiting Lo for the Global Age: Lee Siegel's LOVE IN A DEAD
LANGUAGE," Christian Moraru, Univ. of North Carolina, Greensboro
3. "'Nabokov' as Both String and Hole in the Postmodern Net of
