The Nabokov Society will once again be sponsoring
two panels at the Twentieth Century Literature
Conference in Louisville, KY. Well-organized,
friendly and lively, this conference is always
enjoyable to attend; given this is the 35th
anniversary for the conference, it will be an
even bigger event for all attendees.

Conference date: February 22 – 24, 2007
Proposal submission deadline: September 1, 2006
(please submit proposals directly to Dr. Marianne
Cotugno, who is organizing panels for the Nabokov Society)

Panel 1: Geography in Nabokov's Writings

This panel seeks a collection of papers that
creatively look at Nabokov's treatment of
geography. This topic could lead to more
concrete discussions of specific places in the
writings to assessments of how recent theorists
of space and geography (such as Henri Lefebvre,
Edward Soja, David Harvey, etc.) might offer ways
of thinking in new ways about Nabokov's
work. Nabokov's scientific writing and efforts
should also be considered possible lines of discussion.

A group of papers that seem to offer the best
possibility for lively exchange among
participants and attendees will be chosen for this panel.

Panel 2: Open session

This panel seeks a collection of papers that
offer a fresh perspective to common threads of
critical discussion in Nabokov's works or suggest
new lines of thinking about his works.

If you have any questions about either panel, please contact me.

Abstract submission deadline: September 1, 2006

Please submit 500 – 1500 word abstract and brief bio to
