Our Meringoff Seminar on Ralph Ellison will be hosted by Adam Bradley, the editor of Ellison’s Three Days Before the Shooting. Other seminars will be about Critical Editions, Names and Naming, and History as Literature. In addition, we will have poetry readings by B. H. Fairchild and Timothy Steele, and a musical performance (in connection with the panel on Literature of the Stalin Era) by Steven Cassedy.
