CFP: 12th International Hemingway Conference: Hemingway in Andalusia
(8/15/05; 6/25-30/06)

The Ernest Hemingway Foundation and Society is currently accepting
paper and panel proposals for its 12th biennial international
conference, to be held June 25-30, 2006, in Malaga and Ronda, Spain.
While papers and panel proposals addressing all aspects of Hemingway's
life and work are welcome, proposals addressing Hemingway's Spanish
fiction and non-fiction or Hemingway's experiences in Spain, and more
specifically Andalusia, are particularly encouraged.

Possible topics include works with a particular connection to Ronda or
Malaga, such as _The Sun Also Rises_, _Death in the Afternoon_, _For
Whom the Bell Tolls_, or _The Dangerous Summer_. In fact, Ronda's
importance to taurine culture invites a consideration of Hemingway's
bullfighting fiction and non-fiction, regardless of specific links to
Andalusia. Similarly, Hemingway's use of Ronda for the cliff scene in
_For Whom the Bell Tolls_ invites a wider consideration of Hemingway's
Spanish Civil War journalism and such neglected works as _The Fifth
Column_ and _The Spanish Earth_. Some might even choose to consider _A
Moveable Feast_, which Hemingway wrote and revised, in part, outside of
Malaga, during "the dangerous summer" of 1959. Papers might also
address Hemingway's ties to Malaga's native son, Picasso, or his ties
to any aspect of Andalusian culture.

Please send 1-page paper and panel abstracts by August 15, 2005, to:
