Nabokov and Dreams

Tuesday, February 20, 2018 - 9:06am
International Vladimir Nabokov Society
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 15, 2018

The International Vladimir Nabokov Society is soliciting proposals on the subject of 'Nabokov and Dreams' for its guaranteed MLA Panel at the 2019 Modern Language Association Conference, which will take place in Chicago on January 3rd to 6th 2019.

In the light of the recent publication with Princeton University Press of Nabokov's Insomniac Dreams, this is a particularly timely topic. But dreams are an important theme and device in Nabokov's writing more broadly. Proposals are therefore invited which may deal with any aspect of dreams and the unconscious throughout Nabokov's writing, or indeed with the work of art as a dream. It may also explore the relationship of Nabokov's treatment of dreams to that in other writers.

MSA: Global Modernisms and the Graphic

Douglas Mao and Rebecca Walkowitz's field-defining article, "The New Modernist Studies," turns ten in 2018. Despite the fact that the article takes up new media as a key topic, and although it was published just after ground-breaking work in the "visual turn" of literary studies by Mary Lou Emery (Modernism, the Visual, and Caribbean Literature, 2007), W.J.T. Mitchell (Picture Theory, 2005), Michael North (Camera Works, 2005), and Mark Wollaeger (Modernism, Media, and Propaganda, 2006), theories and discussions of global modernism have since focused considerably more energy on modernism's geographic and temporal dimensions than its relation to the graphic.
