Topic:  From Ovid to Oprah to OS/2: The Meanings and Uses of Reading
Are TV and the internet on a collision course with what we call
"literature"?  Have Oprah and OS/2 eclipsed Ovid?  These and other questions
will propel us to our own investigations of published materials. If you've
always secretly wondered why people read the National
Enquirer, or if you have occasionally glanced at a mass-market paperback, or
scanned Playboy (just for the articles), this may be the course for you.
