Do if Carlos Fuentes and Michel Foucault Showed 
Up at Your MALAS Graduation Party?

MALAS Commencement is on Sunday, 10am,
in West Commons 220--no tickets are necessary
and MALAS MAs need not feel the need to wear
their graduation robes (though if you have them, why
not strut your academic finery!???).  Feel free to bring, friends,

might like to be part of the MALAS experience.
