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.

ReFocus: The Films of João Pedro Rodrigues & João Rui Guerra da Mata

 

With a career that spans over twenty years, João Pedro Rodrigues and João Rui Guerra da Mata are one of the most creative duos in contemporary filmmaking working within the context of Portuguese cinema. Acknowledged by several film festivals (Cannes, Indie Lisboa, Locarno, New York) as major Portuguese directors, and by the Harvard Film Archive as creators whose works “reflect the multifarious history of film, from classic genres to experimental film”, both filmmakers have contributed to the growing interest in Portuguese cinema.

MSA: Global Modernisms and the Graphic

Friday, March 30, 2018

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.

Oxford Research in English, Issue 7: Craft

 

“In my craft or sullen art” -Dylan Thomas

 

Thomas is one in a long line who self-reflexively meditates on his own work. Indeed, a writer’s craft has been the topic of much discussion both by critics and by authors themselves, considering the interplay between a writer’s natural ability and her tendency to consciously create, between the ingenuity of her ideas and the discipline of putting them into practice. In doing so, Thomas, along with others, bring to the forefront an epistemological question: Is ‘crafting’ in opposition to art?
