MLA Panel: Wittgenstein and the Uses of Literature


[Posted by BR]

The MLA has just published the online version of the 2009 MLA Convention program (click here to access it: a password may be required). I took a quick peek at the special session titles, and of course the one below immediately caught my eye. I am sure it will interest some of you as well. If you learn of any other panels that you think would interest readers of this blog, please let me know by email. (We’ve already mentioned this panel on Rorty and this one on Cavell.)
