Intermedial Nabokov and Popular Culture

Since the 1960s, scholars have been debating the (de)merits of cinematic versions of Lolita. By the turn of the twenty-first century, Nabokov studies began to expand its scope to include discussions of how Nabokov’s narrative texts integrate other media and of how his works are adapted by other artists.

This special issue of NOJ will be devoted to the roles and intersections of intermediality and popular culture in Nabokov’s œuvre and in the present-day Nabokov imaginary in the widest sense. Essays may address the particular significance of intermediality for the absorption of popular culture into Nabokov’s works and vice versa. They may just as well discuss the forms and functions of intermediality in works of popular culture that reference and adapt Nabokov’s works.
