DePaul Humanities Center Presents “Making the Novel Novel: Lolita”, Wednesday Jan. 20, 2016

The DePaul Humanities Center continues its radical re-thinking of novels by turning its attention to Vladimir Nabokov’s classic, Lolita. The evening begins with the world premiere of “Young Matrix, Unknown Heart,” adapted for the stage from Nobakov’s novel by Dan Christmann, and performed and directed by Evan Hill and Melissa Lorraine. The performance including author Maryse Meijer, Danielle Meijer (DePaul University), and Shari L. Savage (Ohio State University), will investigate the various artwork used as book covers for Lolita and the complicated ways in which Lolita’s age may not be really the central moral question of the novel.

A discounted parking rate is available. See Humanities Center staff at event for details.
