Renewed Calls for Papers at MLA Convention, Chicago, January 2019
Hello, everyone.

Please see below renewed Calls for Papers for the MLA Annual Convention.
The rubric has been expanded for both calls.

The deadline for proposals for the official guaranteed International
Nabokov Society panel at this year's MLA has been extended and the remit
somewhat expanded. We are now soliciting proposals for 15 minute papers
dealing with the broad subject of Nabokov, dreams, psychology, and the
unconscious. Please submit short proposals, accompanied by a CV, to Thomas
Karshan at t.karshan@uea.ac.uk, by the end of Friday March 23rd. The MLA
will take place at Chicago between January 3rd and 6th and all speakers
need by the time of the conference to be members of the MLA.

At the 2019 Modern Languages Association Convention in Chicago (3-6 January
2019), the International Vladimir Nabokov Society is proposing a special
session on Nabokov and History. Building on recent scholarship that
historicizes Nabokov and his work, this panel explores the different ways
in which Nabokov's fiction is a product of its historical moment. Nabokov
denied the influence of the historical on his work but how might this claim
to aesthetic autonomy be productively challenged? Papers can range from
fresh contextual readings of his work to those that engage with Nabokov's
philosophy of history itself. Particularly welcome are papers that consider
Nabokov and his work in relation to institutions, readerships, and rival
theories of history.
