In April 1995, Texas Tech University sponsored a two-day conference
entitled "Discourse and Ideology in Nabokov's Prose." David H. Larmour,
professor of Classics at Texas Tech, has been preparing an anthology of
essays based on the conference proceedings that will, at some point in the
not-too-awfully-remote future, be brought out by Gordon & Breach, I
understand. From what I recall as an attendee of the conference, not all
the essays were equally concerned with materialist readings of Nabokov's
work, but Larmour's edition (which, I think, borrows its name from
the conference) presumably will give the topic reasonable coverage.
