Panel Title: Hemingway as Father
MLA Conference in Chicago, December 27-30, 2007
Much of the existing scholarship on Hemingway and fathers focuses on his relationship or those of his young male characters to his/their father. For this panel, we invite papers that address Hemingway as father. Papers might explore topics such as Hemingway's attitudes toward fatherhood, his parenting philosophy, his relationship to his sons (real and fictional), etc. and/or Hemingway's status as a literary patriarch including but not limited to the commodification of fatherhood through Hemingway's image as "Papa."
Please send 1-page proposals (including institutional affiliation and av needs) to Suzanne del Gizzo ( by March 2nd.
