Call for papers (edited volume):
Teaching Nabokov’s Lolita in the #MeToo Era
Editor: Dr. Elena Rakhimova-Sommers
The volume seeks essays that explore the experience of teaching Lolita in the #MeToo Era.
I hope to bring together responses to Nabokov’s art that blend pedagogy and critical analysis. After teaching the novel for years, many of us have witnessed (and continue to witness) a fascinating shift in student responses to the text following the start of the #MeToo movement. Some of us rethought the methodology of presenting Lolita and of navigating productive class discussions. I see this volume as a space to start a conversation about the evolving nature of the intellectual (and emotional) task of bringing Lolita to our students and to share faculty insights and best practices.
Please send a 350 word abstract and a brief CV to:
Dr. Elena Rakhimova-Sommers email@example.com by May 15th, 2019.
