The Hemingway Society is extending the deadline for proposals for one of
its sessions at the 2009 ALA, May 21-24 in Boston, MA:

Teaching The Garden of Eden
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.

This panel seeks 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 CarlPEby_at_gwm.sc.edu AND Suzanne del Gizzo at
delgizzos_at_chc.edu by January 7, 2009.
