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 <mailto:CarlPEby at gwm.sc.edu>  AND Suzanne del Gizzo at delgizzos at chc.edu <mailto:delgizzos at chc.edu>  by January 7, 2009.
