For its next session at the MLA Convention 2021 (7-10 January, Toronto), the International Vladimir Nabokov Society welcomes proposals  on the following theme:

Playing with/for Time: Nabokov's Persistent Images

 Nabokov created persistent images (visual and other), which mark readers' minds not unlike the phenomenon of retinal persistence. How do such images survive, confer timelessness to his fiction, or anchor it in a specific temporality? Please send a 250-word abstract to Lara Delage-Toriel (ldelage@unistra.fr) and a very short bio by March 24th, 2020.
