Re: Nabokov at the Berg?
I enjoyed the lively discussion of the problems of teaching Lolita.

On another subject entirely, I wanted to write to the new (post-Isaac Gewirtz) director of the Berg Collection but on Googling for the new appointee found only the advertisement, which in summarizing the collection does not mention the papers of VN, although more Berg researchers come to work on him than on anyone:

NYPL Careers Center ad<https://jobs-nypl.icims.com/jobs/10051/henry-w.-and-albert-a.-berg-curator-of-english-and-american-literature/job?mobile=false&width=750&height=500&bga=true&needsRedirect=false&jan1offset=780&jun1offset=720>

and here's the relevant description:

Strengths of the collections support research in the Irish Literary Renaissance; British poets of the First World War; early and late Modernism; Bloomsbury; the Black Mountain poets; the Beats; and the New York School. Significant archival holdings include the papers of Paul Auster, Joseph Conrad, Alfred Kazin, Jack Kerouac, Annie Proulx, Terry Southern, and Virginia Woolf. Other notable literary archives at The Library include the papers of author Tom Wolfe, Truman Capote, the records of The New Yorker, and the publishing company Farrar, Straus & Giroux.

Why would you list Alfred Kazin (and others, IMHO) rather than Nabokov? In another list (of the Manuscripts and Archives Division as a whole) the papers of Babette Deutsch, but again, not those of Nabokov, are mentioned. Curious.
