CFP: Teaching Nabokov’s Lolita in the #MeToo Era

Deadline to Apply: May 15, 2019

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 by May 15th, 2019.
