Call For Papers: Teaching Hemingway and Race
(A Kent State University Press essay collection)
The goal of the Kent State University Press Teaching Hemingway Series is to present collections of essays with various approaches to teaching emergent themes in Hemingway’s major works to a variety of students in secondary and private schools and at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Teacher-scholars who have used Hemingway’s work in domestic, international, HBCU, MA/PhD, MFA, and many other settings may apply.
The editors invite interested scholars to contribute to what will be an unquestionably stimulating, innovative collection, Teaching Hemingway and Race. A goal of this volume is to reconsider the author’s work in view of recent theoretical-critical developments, such as Critical Race Theory, transnational studies, and emergent approaches that inquire into the textual intersections between multiple cultural positions, and then present a practical, concise pedagogical approach to a specific topic. The ideal length of a contribution is between 10 and 15 pages. All accepted essays should balance theory/interpretation and concrete classroom practices. We foresee including writing prompts, syllabi, handouts, critical readings, and models for digital pedagogy (e.g., Web resources and Wiki writing).
With respect to thematic considerations, the editors seek to explore Hemingway’s disposition with regard to race (which for the purposes of this volume will include ethnic, tribal, and national locations and their interstices) as well as the place of race in Hemingway studies.
Contributors may consider Hemingway’s representations of Native American/indigenous, African American and/or African, Asian American and/or Asian, Latino and/or Latin American, and/or ethnic European (e.g., Roma/Gypsy, Basque) characters and peoples, in view of current readings of race and difference. In other words, what complex roles do Hemingway’s raced figures play in his fiction and journalism? Indeed, what role might they play in delineating his influential literary style or other aspects of his literary productivity?
Another potentially interesting topic may be not concerned solely with Hemingway’s portrayals of a single minority group, but one that considers his depictions of two or more cultures or cultural nationalities.
Or the contributor might wish to consider Hemingway’s writing vis-à-vis work by black, indigenous, immigrant, and/or ethnic authors beyond the United States.
Such authors as Langston Hughes, Ralph Ellison, Derek Walcott, and Gayl Jones have praised and cited Hemingway’s writing as a determining stimulus. How may Hemingway’s representations of ethnic minorities be understood vis-à-vis writers who are known for work that is intensely motivated toward examining political and social complexities for ethnic peoples?
How might Hemingway’s “lost generation” figure within or in contrast with the Harlem Renaissance/New Negro movement? How might his writings about raced characters and peoples figure into his particular view of modernist prose? How might it be seen in terms of Pan-Africanism, Garvey’s Back to Africa movement, and the rise of black transnationalism, black modernism and postmodernism?
How might Hemingway’s work be read in terms of historical trajectories affecting racial, ethnic, tribal, or immigrant peoples: the Great Migration, the Pan-Indian movement, etc.?
Considering his portrayals of indigenous peoples, how might Hemingway’s writing be understood with reference to Native American authors like Louise Erdrich and James Welch? How might his writings be read in relation to Latino authors like José Martí, Julia Alvarez, Oscar Hijuelos, and Junot Díaz?
If not already familiar with current criticism on the subject of Hemingway and questions of race, potential contributors should survey recent research related to this topic, such as work by Amy L. Strong, Marc K. Dudley, Richard Fantina, and the critical collection Hemingway and the Black Renaissance (Ohio State UP, 2012).
The editors welcome proposals from both established and emerging teacher-scholars. We are also interested in how teacher-scholars have adapted their ways of teaching Hemingway in a racially focused context due to pedagogical, critical, and personal developments.
Proposals of no more than 750 words and an abbreviated CV that indicates research and scholarly activity should be sent to the volume editor:
Gary Holcomb (firstname.lastname@example.org), Department of African American Studies, Ohio University, and c.c. series editor Mark Ott (email@example.com) by August 15, 2013. Accepted authors should plan to deliver completed manuscripts (2,500-4,000 words) by September 30, 2013. To ensure fullest consideration in the volume, the deadline for abstracts is August 15, 2013

CALL FOR PAPERS – “Moveable Feasts: New Essays on Hemingway’s Posthumous Work”
Manuscripts are solicited for a new collection of original essays (25-35 pp, double-spaced) on Hemingway’s posthumous works: A Moveable Feast, Islands in the Stream, The Garden of Eden, True at First Light, Under Kilimanjaro, stories, and journalism/essays. Publication of the collection by a major university press is being planned. Contributors would be writing against a 1 January 2014 deadline.
Any approaches will be considered, although there is a special interest in working with compositional history, editing and revision, both by Hemingway and by editors, friends, and others after his death. Interested scholars might consider any newly accessioned series of correspondence between Hemingway and others, particularly in the JFK collection, that might be thought to comprise a “narrative” of its own and cast light on his writing style, fictional preoccupations, etc.
Another avenue to explore might be the way in which themes of his fiction or areas of his life are given a different slant in the posthumous works, either as a result of Hemingway’s own composition and revision or of others’ editing of his texts. Such topics might include but not be limited to: his conception of himself as natural historian or as teacher/mentor; his interest in medicine, disease, and illness; his interest in art and relationships with such figures as Miro, et al.; and his politics.
Interested contributors should send queries and/or 350-word abstracts to hutchissonj@Citadel.edu or by snail mail to: James M. Hutchisson, Department of English, The Citadel, 171 Moultrie Street, Charleston, SC, 29409. Faxes can also be received at 843-953-1881.

University of Idaho - Hemingway & Idaho Festival September 4-7, 2012
This three-day festival is a celebration of Ernest Hemingway, his well-known love for Idaho, and the university’s longstanding publication of The Hemingway Review, the world’s preeminent journal of Hemingway scholarship, and the creative writing program’s recently established Hemingway Fellowship.
Beginning in 2005, the University of Idaho’s Creative Writing Program and The Hemingway Review partnered with the Hemingway Foundation/PEN New England in awarding the Hemingway Fellowship. This year’s winner, Loren Lee Landrus, grew up in Blanchard, Idaho, on a dairy farm. He received his B.A. from Lewis-Clark State College in 2010 and is currently in his final year as an MFA fiction candidate at the University of Idaho.
During the festival this year’s Hemingway Foundation/PEN Award Winner, Teju Cole, will read from his work, Open City. He will also be teaching undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Idaho and will be meeting with local high school students to discuss writing, literature, and the importance of Hemingway’s legacy.
