Special Issue of The Hemingway Review on Hemingway, Blackness, and Whiteness

The Hemingway Review
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 29, 2022

 

This special issue of The Hemingway Review aims to deepen the conversation about Hemingway, Blackness, and Whiteness. Recognizing Hemingway was taught and expected to perform White Supremacy and Privilege, we call on scholars to demonstrate ways to identify and make meaning of racism and anti-racism in Hemingway’s work. What can we learn from Hemingway about the performance of Whiteness and what use is that knowledge? How have Black writers engaged Hemingway, both in his lifetime and later? What questions about Blackness and Whiteness in the United States should we be asking of Hemingway’s public persona, Hemingway’s writing, and our teaching of both?

Since the emergence of Asian American Studies as an intellectual field of studies almost 60 years ago, the field of Asian / Asian American Studies has not only evolved as a whole but has also had to endure ongoing changes and readaptations. Now, perhaps more than ever, the field of Asian / Asian American Studies calls for new changes or perhaps even a new vision, to help us cope with the many living realities and meanings—whether racially, culturally, historically, or politically, just to name a few—on which we stand.
