*Chicago Style: Hemingway and Chicago*
Though Paris has been more spectacularly mythologized, Hemingway’s Chicago
is also key to his life and work as a place of artistic development,
critical reception, and imaginative inspiration. Not only did Hemingway
spend his formative childhood years in the Victorian atmosphere of nearby
Oak Park, but he also spent the influential months between the trenches of
Italy and the bohemian glamour of Paris living amid the afterglow of the
Chicago Renaissance literary scene. The city of Chicago embodied for
Hemingway a distinct mixture of influences: the conservatism of his Oak
Park upbringing and the modernism of an artistic community H. L. Mencken
dubbed “the literary capital of the United States.” We invite papers that
explore Hemingway’s relationship with the city of Chicago, the Chicago
Renaissance, and/or his childhood in nearby Oak Park.
Please direct your 250 word proposal and a short professional bio to Jace
Gatzemeyer at jpg224 at psu.edu. The deadline for proposals is 15 March 2018.
Papers will be limited to 15-20 minutes.
