*San Diego, CA*


The Ernest Hemingway Society will sponsor the following panel at the
upcoming ALA Conference:

*The Paratextual Hemingway*

In his recent essay in the *Hemingway Review*, Michael Thurston argues that
the paratexts (covers, title pages, dedications, chapter headings) and
bibliographic texts (paper, typefaces, print layout) of Ernest Hemingway’s
1924 *in our time* “sometimes produce a *hermeneutic effect*, resonating
with themes that arise from the texts, and sometimes produce what can be
thought of as a *positional effect*, inviting certain protocols of reading
that suggest to the reader the kind of book in her or his hands” (9). In
light of this inventive new attention to the material features of *in our
time*, this panel proposes to examine the paratexts and bibliographic texts
of Hemingway’s literary production. What meaning can we draw from these
physical artifacts? What signifying properties can be found in the dust
jacket, the title page, or even the paper upon which Hemingway’s work is
printed? How might these material features help us rethink Hemingway’s
modernism and his place in the matrix of early twentieth-century modernist
literary experimentation?

Please direct your 250 word proposal and a short professional bio to Jace
Gatzemeyer at  jace.gatzemeyer at gmail.com. *The new deadline for proposals
is January 15, 2020*. Papers will be limited to 15-20 minutes.
