The Ernest Hemingway Symposium 2013: Hemingway and the Modern
The emphasis of this year’s event will be “Hemingway and the Modern,” highlighting how Ernest Hemingway’s life and writing were influenced by the world in which he lived and how his writing changed that world. Hemingway’s writing continues to influence writers and readers more than fifty years after his death. "Modern" can and does point to literary studies and to Hemingway's high period, but it also has suggestive connotations not just for what is new, but maybe more specifically for what has been reinvented, revised, updated, etc. We will focus on reinvention and re-seeing throughout this year's programming.
