(Re)deeming Hemingway

This is a CFP for a proposed panel to be held at (dis)junctions, the 15th
annual humanities conference at University of California Riverside on April
11-12, 2008. Harold Bloom has famously dubbed Hemingway “a minor novelist
with a major style.” This sort of characterization, as well as his troubled
relationship with “cutting edge theory” has rendered Hemingway increasingly
unfashionable in academia. Contributors are invited to submit critical
works that examine the ways in which Hemingway’s work can be interpreted in
new light. These papers can analyze any of the Hemingway’s texts and/or any
relevant critical and biographical works.

Abstracts of 250-300 words should be submitted by email to by the deadline of February 16, 2008 (text in
the body of the message; please no attachments). Please include all contact
information and institution affiliation.
