American Literature Association Conference
May 21-24, 2009
Boston, MA

This panel seeks to explore issues and strategies related to teaching
Hemingway's posthumously published novel, The Garden of Eden. Since it
was first published in 1986, the available version of The Garden of Eden
has occasioned controversy and significant re-evaluations of Hemingway's
work, personal life, and persona.
We hope to address questions such as: What are the challenges of
teaching The Garden of Eden? What issues arise (ethical, philosophical,
generic, etc.)? What pedagogical strategies are useful? What
critical/theoretical approaches are useful? How do students respond to
the novel? Write about it? What is the value of teaching Garden? The
panel will consist of 4 or 5 presenters with short papers (approximately
10 minutes each).

Please send 1-page proposals with academic rank and affiliation and av
requests to Carl P. Eby at AND Suzanne del Gizzo at by December 15, 2008.
