"Nabokov and Germany"

On October 21-26, 1999, the Nabokov Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia will present "Nabokov and Germany," the second event in its "Nabokov and Foreign Countries" series. The five-day festival will include a scholarly conference (October 22-24), two exhibitions, two film screenings (one of them a world premiere of Oleg Dorman's documentary about Nabokov), and a theater program. The event is supported by the Consulate General of Germany in St. Petersburg, the Goethe Institute in St. Petersburg, Pratt and Whitney Space Propulsion (CA, USA), and several Russian-German commercial companies.

The organizers of "Nabokov and Germany" welcome Russian and international scholars interested in reading a paper, giving a 90-minute lecture, or speaking at the Round Table session on the subject of Vladimir Nabokov's relation with the German language and German culture.

Most of the papers presented (or their abstracts) will be published in the 6th issue of the "Nabokovskii Vestnik." Participants must cover their own travel expenses and pay for their accommodations, but no registration fee is required. The Nabokov Museum will provide visa support to its guests and help them make reservations at a hotel in St. Petersburg.
