Lara Delage-Toriel, President of the International Vladimir Nabokov Society, is happy to announce the following Nabokov panel at next year's MLA Convention. The 2021 MLA Convention will be virtual, which means that there will be easier access to the session. The session will also be recorded.

The panel's time slot is 12:00-1:15pm EST on 7th January, 2021. Some additional good news: the session in question has been selected by Judith Butler to be featured in the main theme of the convention.
