Come See Me Talk About Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction
Tomorrow will be insane. The Rocky Mountain chapter of the MLA is holding its annual conference in Tucson, but I probably won't be able to go until Friday, because I have so much on my plate. There's the Michael Lerner talk in the evening. I'd like to rush over to Modern Languages to see the tail-end of the prose series reading afterwards, since my former office mate and generally wondrous colleague Aurelie Sheehan will be up last. I'm not sure I'll have time, though. And then there's this panel I'm on in the afternoon, right after I'm done teaching:

I can't promise greatness, but the preliminary discussion the panelists had on Monday suggested that our public conversation will be interesting. I might even get to mention Walter Benjamin! It should be over by 6pm. Oh, and the moth exhibition, which dances along the line between art and science, is impressive, bringing out the inner Nabokov in anyone who has an inner Nabokov.

Having such a packed schedule is frustrating when one wants to go see talks and such. I must get to the moth exhibition some how before it's gone, though. Somehow.

It's hard. That's for sure. Good luck!

It IS going to be insane. I'm finishing my paper today, and then tomorrow I have to teach, so I'll probably get over there by like 330 or something. I need to see what's good in the afternoon and then give my paper Saturday morning....

Sounds stressful. Will Wendy be here?

Yep. I was talking with Amy earlier about the possibility of getting something together on Saturday, since Angela will be here too. Are you free at night?
