Marianne Cotugno / Nabokov Society

I am again seeking submissions for the Nabokov panel at the Literature Since 1900 conference from February 24 โ€“ 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.

Rhetoric of Prayer in Medieval Poetry [UPDATE]

Erik Wade / University of Oregon

Call for papers, International Congress on Medieval Studies, Kalamazoo, MI, 5/12 โ€“ 5/11.
Panel Title: "Rhetoric of Prayer in Medieval Poetry"

The portrayal of prayer in medieval verse allows us to see how it was conceived outside of strictly theological discussions in ways such as Karen Jolly's examination of the role of prayers in Anglo-Saxon charms. Papers will examine what the depiction of prayers reveals about the underlying cultural conceptions of prayer as an act and could consider such wide-ranging topics as:

The role of prayers as charms or petitions.

The conditions necessary for a prayer's efficacy.

The possible disparities between secular and theological conceptions of prayer.
