Vladimir Nabokov

ASEEES and AATSEEL 2023/24 Nabokov papers

From ASEEES, Philadelphia, Nov. 2023:

"Nabokovian Panopticon: The Right of Death and the Freedom of Body in Vladimir Nabokov’s Invitation to a Beheading," Elizaveta Senatorova, Columbia U.

This paper aims to provide an analysis of Nabokov's novel Invitation to a Beheading through the prism of the disciplinary power and biopolitics. Using the theoretical framework of Michel Foucault, Senatorova focuses on the perception of the body by power, society, and the protagonist.
