full name / name of organization: 

Call for papers:
A Journal of the Short Story in English Special Issue:
The short stories of Ernest Hemingway
Deadline for submissions: 31 December, 2006.

For a special issue of the Journal of the Short Story in English on "The
short stories of Ernest Hemingway," we invite submissions on the wide
range this title offers (there are more than one hundred pieces of
published short fiction written by Hemingway). Yet, we encourage works
that explore textually the stories, examine the discursive strata that
create complex effects and renew the experience of reading. The
deliberate equivocalness of Hemingway's writing, the music of
understatement, the plastic quality of description, the syntactic vigor
of discourse, the violence of desire and its strategies of concealment
(verbal, visual, dramatic), the tension between the unsaid (private
secret) and the unspeakable (universal secret), the poetics of cruelty
lying at the core of his work, are, among many other relevant notions,
pertinent reading keys disclosing new dimensions of the ambiguously
simple complexity of Hemingway's writing.

Submissions, not exceeding 7000 words and conforming to the MLA Style
Manual (1985), should be sent electronically to the guest editor:
R=E9douane Abouddahab, and to,,
co-editors or to and,
American editors. If you submit a paper manuscript, please send only one
copy to R=E9douane Abouddahab, universit=E9 Lumi=E8re-Lyon2,
D=E9partement du Monde Anglophone, 74, rue Pasteur, 69 007, Lyon,

paper, a 150-word abstract, in English and French if possible, a short
