This year marks the 50th anniversary of the first American publication of
Vladimir Nabokov's masterpiece, _Lolita._ In celebration of this
milestone, and of the novel's unabated cultural importance, this panel
seeks to offer a selection of contemporary approaches to the novel. Papers
engaging the most tenacious strands of _Lolita_ criticism are certainly
welcome (censorship/obscenity debates, _Lolita_ as a pop fusion of
"highbrow" and "lowbrow," the novel as the "Great American" whatever), but
eclectic and original submissions on any aspect of _Lolita_ are strongly
encouraged. Please send abstracts of 250-500 words to Justin St.Clair,
University of South Alabama <jmstclair_at_jaguar1.usouthal.edu>.
