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.
300-word abstract – CV by  March 23 2018 to Duncan White (duncanwhite@fas.harvard.edu)
