The Meowist Language Association announces that its 2007 Convention will be held December 27-30.
Expect the usual exceptional offering of general sessions, special sessions, and theoretical sessions, constructivist and deconstructivist sessions, Paul de Man sessions, feminist and post-feminist sessions, queer theory and pre-queer theory sessions, and, new this year, even "Christian" special interest sessions (e.g., CCL). Also, assistance for non-tenure-track and unemployed faculty members is available.
Along with all of that, there will be a special presentation of the Feline Unpatriarchal Bestowal of Artistic Recognition, otherwise known, affectionately, as the Modern Art Cats' Trophy. Serrano is a front runner for the nod, but Manzoni and Basquiat are lobbying for the coveted award, despite some minor limitations at present.
In the interest of public relations, and avoiding some pre-convention ambiguity experienced in previous years, it has been decided to not publicize the list of the hundreds of subjects presented, which can range anywhere from romance literature (sic) to Shakespeare (whether he wants talked about by us or not).
The Convention will be held in the world-renown Gobbler Motel and Supper Club in Wisconsin -- the same place that housed the planning and kickoff of the hyper-modern movement -- well, "postmodern" for the intellectuals, kitsch for the pedestrians.
Please reserve your room quickly at this first-class, 5-star establishment. Don't miss this opportunity to stay in purple-carpeted rooms (floor and walls). Be sure to check out the very room where video games were invented.
