July 30th @ 1 pm – Hemingway and Race Moderated by Marc DudleyPanelists: Gary Holcomb, Ian Marshall, Quentin Miller, and Peggy Wright-Cleveland How might the Black Lives Matter movement affect the way we read, teach, and write about Hemingway? Will it? If so, in what ways? Hemingway and Race is a large and complicated topic. Hemingway wrote about Native peoples and had a long relationship with the Latin world. This panel will focus primarily on Hemingway’s interactions with black people, his portrayals of black characters, and his awareness of and relationship to social movements related to race.

August 6th @ 1 pm – Hemingway and SexModerated by Suzanne del GizzoPanelists: Carl Eby, Debra Moddelmog, Lisa TylerHow does the #MeToo movement affect the way we read, teach, and write about Hemingway? Gender and sexuality have been defining topics in Hemingway scholarship for nearly forty years now, but #MeToo adds new levels of complexity to that already rich discussion, inviting us to think about the dynamics of sex, seduction, and sexual violence in Hemingway’s work.
