The Society for Contemporary Literature, a group dedicated to the study of literature of the last 25 years, invites 300-word abstracts for presentations at the 27th Annual Conference of the American Literature Assoc. We encourage scholars to think broadly about culture, experimentation, and their relationships to contemporary literature. In the past 25 years, experimentation in literature has seen a diverse and dramatic boom. Literature sees experiment by way of form, structure, context, theme, and modes of mediation.

CFP Lolita at 60

updated: 
Sunday, November 29, 2015 - 12:38pm
French Vladimir Nabokov Society

It has been sixty years since Lolita first appeared in its green-clad double volume in 1955 in Paris, published by Maurice Girodias (Olympia Press). During those six decades, the nymphet that Nabokov carved out of American poshlust made her way through all the clichés of magazines and tabloids, but also through the history of literature and the history of language (one can now look up the noun "Lolita" in dictionaries). Lolita also shaped a very specific way of being a reader, mainly because of its intertextual layering which plays with the stereotypes of Romantic poetry and detective novels, and because of its very unique narrative stance and traps.
