The location for the upcoming MLA Convention creates a great opportunity to revisit Ernest Hemingway's relationships with all things Canadian. This panel seeks proposals that explore Hemingway's biographical connections or literary influence in the country. While Hemingway lived in Canada for a relatively short period of time (compared to his other residences), his biography contains a great deal of Canadian influence whether through his association with the Toronto Star, his friendships with individuals like the Connable family or Morley Callaghan, or his connections with the country as the birthplace of his first son.
