The Hemingway Society invites paper, workshop, and panel proposals for the 14th International Hemingway conference: Hemingway’s “Extreme Geographies,” June 25-July 3, 2010. With “Hemingway’s Extreme Geographies,” the organizers wish to prompt a consideration of the ways the experience of space and geography—its physical, psychological, and emotional dimensions—informed Hemingway’s writing. Hemingway had an acute sense of space and its evocative capabilities. Hemingway also wrote about the geography of the body—the way it imposes its own limits and topography by being marked, scarred, or gendered. Even Hemingway’s sentences, grammar, and syntax suggest the importance of the material space of the story and the terrain of the words on the page.
Organizers encourage participants to interpret the conference theme broadly. We welcome proposals on all aspects of Hemingway’s artistic and existential experience, but we are particularly interested in contributions that explore Hemingway’s penchant for intense experiences in liminal spaces (physical and psychological) as a starting point for his writing.
All proposals are due by Sept. 15, 2009. Proposals should be sent to the conference organizers (Suzanne del Gizzo and Boris Vejdovsky) at firstname.lastname@example.org .
