Subject: Literary Circles Conference at Dearborn
Because of a problem with the mail (probably due to the Northwest
Airline strike), programs for a forthcoming conference at the University
of Michigan at Dearborn have not been received by many of the people to
whom they were sent. What follows is a brief overview of the
conference. For full information, including details about registration,
mailing address is Humanities Department, UM-D, Dearborn, MI
** PLEASE NOTE: This conference should be especially memorable since it
will pay tribute to Professor Ted-Larry Pebworth on the occasion of his
retirement from the Faculty of the University of Michigan-Dearborn.
Please forward this announcement to other relevant lists. Thanks!
