Welcome to the official site of the International Vladimir Nabokov Society (IVNS)! You can access most of the site according to your wishes, but to add to or edit material wiki-style (as we would love you to do) and join in lively discussions, you will have to register to the site by following the protocol spelled out below. If you wish to become a member of the Society, you will have access to a trove of resources related to Nabokov, including annotations to Nabokov’s works and materials published in The Nabokovian and Nabokov Studies. (Members who can get access to Nabokov Studies through their academic institutions are highly encouraged to get access via their institutional libraries. Getting access through an institutional library generates payments for Davidson College, which has subsidized the journal since its inception.)
Designed to support wiki-style contributions, the site will grow as its registered membership grows. Nabokov scholars: please add your names and profiles to the list of “Nabokovians.” Admirers of Nabokov: please consider joining the International Vladimir Nabokov Society, a vibrant community of Nabokov readers, students, and scholars worldwide.
REGISTRATION PROTOCOL: Because of an escalating number of bot infiltrations, those wishing to register to the site are asked to follow the protocol below:
- Go to the Carleton University English Department website. Click on “OUR PEOPLE.” Click on “FACULTY.” Email your request to the address listed for “Dana Dragunoiu.”
- The message should contain a full name, an institutional affiliation, and a favourite Nabokov novel or passage. The use of complete sentences is encouraged. The more ample expression of interest in Nabokov, the quicker the verification process will be.
- A login and password will be sent out shortly. The password can be changed the first time that it is used.
Looking forward to receiving your registration request,
