CFP: VN & the Art of Composition--NEMLA 2014

I invite you to submit proposals for a panel I will be chairing at the 2014 Northeast Modern Language Assoc. annual conference, April 3-6, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

Here is the official CFP:

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, mroth@messiah.edu<mailto:mroth@messiah.edu>. Deadline: 30 September 2013

I hope that some of you will submit. I am open to various approaches (manuscript studies focused on particular works, comparative studies, theoretical approaches that use Nabokov's process to talk about larger issues in composition studies, etc.).

Many thanks in advance,
Matt Roth
