Graduate Students' Awards (fwd)
From: Galya Diment <galya@u.washington.edu>

According to the most recent AAASS Newsletter, two out of six students who
were winners of the AAASS Regional Affiliates' graduate student papers
contests got their awards for papers on Nabokov: Stephen H. Blackwell
(Indiana) for "Priglashenie na kazn'' and the Renewal of Reading," and Brian
Thomas Oles (U. of Washington, when he wrote the paper, now at U. of
Wisconsin) for "Silence and the Ineffable in Nabokov's Invitation to a
Beheading." (It's interesting that both papers were on the same novel.)
Brian's paper, revised for an article, will be featured, if I remember it
correctly, in the forthcoming issue of Nabokov Studies.
