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.

Please send proposals of no more than 300 words, accompanied by a CV, by 15th March to Thomas Karshan, President of the International Vladimir Nabokov Society, at the contact e-mail address.
