Spaced Out. Spatiality in Comics 

International Conference 
Cagliari, Italy, 26-27 October 2017

 

How is space thematised and transformed, strengthened or weakened in the narrative comic? To what extent do comics rewrite and reinvent space by offering a place where spatial coordinates can be reconfigured in a utopian or fantastic manner? How does this reconfiguration affect perception devices? And again, how can the representation of spatiality in comics be modified within the network of the ongoing transmedia transformations?

International Vladimir Nabokov Society
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 26, 2017

The International Vladimir Nabokov Society invites papers on Nabokov's representations of—and resistance to—tyrants and tyranny, political or non-political, for a special session at the 2018 MLA Annual Meeting (New York, January 4-7). Papers treating the author's literary engagements against despots (real or fictional), demagogues, police states, fascists, Soviet oppression, Nazism, and/or totalitarian regimes (e.g., “Tyrants Destroyed,” Invitation to a Beheading, Bend Sinister, etc.) are especially welcomed, but the topic may also be conceived broadly in relation to his many works (e.g., Humbert's tyranny over Lolita, Kinbote's over Shade's poem in Pale Fire, the tyranny of Nabokovian narrators, etc.).
