Lara Delage-Toriel, President of the International Vladimir Nabokov Society, is happy to announce the following Nabokov panel at next year's MLA Convention. The 2021 MLA Convention will be virtual, which means that there will be easier access to the session. The session will also be recorded.

The panel's time slot is 12:00-1:15pm EST on 7th January, 2021. Some additional good news: the session in question has been selected by Judith Butler to be featured in the main theme of the convention.

Our very own Brian Boyd, doyen of Nabokov Studies, is the first humanist to win the Rutherford Medal by Royal Society Te Apārangi for his world-leading scholarship on literature. This distinction is based on Professor Boyd's contributions to the life and works of the great twentieth-century novelist Vladimir Nabokov and his innovative perspectives on connecting literature and the arts to evolutionary theory and exploring relations between the arts, humanities and sciences.

Heartfelt congratulations, dear Brian, from us all!
