Marianne Cotugno / Nabokov Society

I am again seeking submissions for the Nabokov panel at the Literature Since 1900 conference from February 24 – 26, 2011 in Louisville, KY. This is a wonderful, friendly conference held on the U of L campus in a great Midwestern city. I have attended many times, and am happy to talk more off-list about the conference if you have questions.

Although the topic is "open", I'd like to select papers that share some connections to better facilitate post-presentation discussion. One area I am interested in is Nabokov and the law, but that's just one idea, which comes from my research addressing law enforcement writing and technical communication. If you would like to talk more about topic ideas, please email me off-list.

Abstracts that incorporate this year's convention theme of "The Interplay between Text and Image" are welcome but not required.
