Many thanks for your participation in the Nova Convention. In some respects I regret that the event strayed so far from the original conception of a visit to New York by the French intellectual community who recognize my work. Certainly I must apologize for the problems encountered with Lotringer – it would seem that he “dropped the wand” as we say.
Of course, the Colloque de Tanger and the Paris-New York events were the inspirations for the Nova Convention, and I am grateful to you for you many efforts behind those and other matters.
It was good to talk with you here, and I am looking forward to seeing you again, perhaps as soon as this Spring as we discussed. Please write to me or James with details of these things as soon as you know more.
With best wishes for the New Year.
