Becoming a Member of the International Vladimir Nabokov Society
While you can use and contribute much of the website without membership in the International Vladimir Nabokov Society, membership entitles you to discounts on a number of books related to Nabokov, to see a number of restricted pages,
- the Annotations to Nabokov's works
- including Brian Boyd's new instalments to "Annotations to Ada" for eight months before they appear on AdaOnline
- the content of all issues of the print Nabokovian (1978-2015)
- the Notes and Brief Commentaries of the online 2018- continuation of the print Nabokovian (only members can contribute and access)
and also to participate in IVNS activities, such as sponsored conferences and conference panels.
To become a member, use the payment link below, which will take you to PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account in order to make payment, just a credit card. When you reach the next page, click the light-blue link "Pay with Debit or Credit Card" if you don't have, or don't want, a PayPal account. Memberships run for the calendar year and expire on Dec. 31, regardless of when they are purchased. Active Nabokovians are encouraged to become paid members of the International Vladimir Nabokov Society.
Even if you are a member, you will still need to register to the site to be able to add and edit material. After you have done this, please write an email addressed to the site's Associate Editor (Stanislav Shvabrin) and request member access. To avoid unnecessary delays, be certain to follow the most basic of epistolary conventions to demonstrate that you are indeed an individual interested in Vladimir Nabokov (as opposed to someone after another email database). Also, when visiting the site, please remember to log in: otherwise, you will not have access to all the materials that your registration or your membership to IVNS entitles you to. We advise that you take care always to be logged in (and viewing pages) through the secure (https) connection.
If you would like to sponsor a membership for another individual, make your purchase as usual, and add a note-to-seller within PayPal notifying of the sponsorship. Please also send an email notification directly to the treasurer (currently Christopher Link) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note on lapsed renewals: if you are renewing your membership after a gap of a year or more (and have lost access to restricted pages), please write the site's Associate Editor (S. Shvabrin) to have access restored after you complete your renewal.
Choose your status from the pull-down, and click "pay now." (The link will take you off-site to PayPal.)
If you would like to make a tax-deductible (in the US) donation to the Society, please follow the link below and enter the amount of your donation on the PayPal page. Checks with donations (in USD, from US Banks only), payable to Vladimir Nabokov Society, may also be sent to IVNS c/o Blackwell, 701 McClung Tower, University of Tennessee, Knoxville TN 37914. (The link will take you off-site to PayPal.)
