The International Vladimir Nabokov Society invites paper proposals on 'Nabokov and Contemporary Writing' for its guaranteed panel at the MLA 2020 Meeting in Seattle next January. We are interested in papers on how living writers - whether novelists, poets, playwrights, or writers of creative non-fiction - have drawn on Nabokov's work, whether in celebration or in criticism. How does Nabokov continue to be a fertile and challenging presence in contemporary letters? Papers from practising writers, including those describing their own response to Nabokov, are warmly welcomed as well as those by scholars. Please send 300-word proposals with CV to Dr Thomas Karshan, President of the IVNS, at t.karshan@uea.ac.uk by March 22, 2019.
