The Hemingway Society invites proposals for a panel at the 2007 American
Literature Association Conference in San Francisco, CA
entitled “Interactive Hemingway”.

This panel aims to explore interactive approaches to teaching and/or
presenting Hemingway’s life, novels, short stories (including The Nick
Adams Stories collection), newspaper dispatches, as well as his work as a
war correspondent using new media and/or technologies. Panelists might
explore teaching Hemingway with film (films made from his writings and/or
documentary pieces generated for teaching), the use and/or creation of
websites, you-tube resources, etc., the use of PowerPoint, audio files,
performance, etc.

In keeping with the panel’s theme, we wish to design a session that also
emphasizes interaction between presenters and attendees. In order to
maximize time for discussion and exchange, papers/presentations should be
approximately 12-15 minutes. We may also ask presenters to permit us to
post relevant materials on a session website prior to the conference.

Abstracts should be approximately 250 words and should be sent to both
Suzanne del Gizzo delgizzo_at_chc.edu and Todd Thomas tthomas_at_gmc.cc.gs.us
by December 21st. Please include your name, academic affiliation, and
any audio-visual requests in your proposal.
