Ernest Hemingway vs. the United States Government

Due to the location of this year's ALA conference in the nation's capitol, it seems a prime opportunity to examine Ernest Hemingway's often cantankerous relationship with all things governmental and political. From situations like his continual irritation with the Internal Revenue Service to his investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Hemingway often chaffed at bureaucracy and governmental oversight. This panel seeks papers that explore any aspects of Hemingway's interactions with the American government or American politics, whether positive, negative, or any degree in-between. Please send your 250 word proposal and a brief CV to Professor Sara Kosiba at skosiba@troy.edu by January 1st, 2014.
