I am reposting the following CFP for a panel I have put together for the Northeast Modern Language Association convention, which will take place in Harrisburg, PA on April 3-6, 2014. The deadline is fast approaching! I need abtracts by September 30. If I were already swimming in wonderful abstracts, I would not be soliciting more at this late date, so please, if you have a notion to submit something, write it up and send it to me as soon as possible. I am open to any approach, provided it bears somehow on VN’s process of writing and revision.  Thanks!


Vladimir Nabokov and the Art of Composition

This panel invites papers focused on Vladimir Nabokov and the art of composition. This panel will consider all aspects of Nabokov’s writing process, including the question of how his approach came to shape both the form and subject of his novels; his approach to revision; and the relationship of his methods to larger theories of composition. Please email a one-page abstract to Matthew Roth, Messiah College,
