This year marks the 50th anniversary of the first American publication of Vladimir Nabokov's masterpiece, _Lolita_. In celebration of this milestone, and of the novel's unabated cultural importance, this panel seeks to offer a selection of contemporary approaches to the novel. Papers engaging the most tenacious strands of _Lolita_ criticism are certainly welcome (censorship/obscenity debates, _Lolita_ as a pop fusion of "highbrow" and "lowbrow," the novel as the "Great American" whatever), but eclectic and original submissions on any aspect of _Lolita_ are strongly encouraged. Please send abstracts of 250-500 words to Justin St.Clair, University of South Alabama .
