Call for Papers (Arkansas Review)
The Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum will partner with Arkansas Review to celebrate the museum’s 15th year anniversary. The Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum (in Piggott, AR) preserves the home of the Pfeiffer family, whose oldest daughter Pauline was Ernest Hemingway’s second wife. The family converted their barn into a studio for Ernest, and it was in this unlikely spot that he wrote portions of A Farewell to Arms and several short stories. The Pfeiffers were also some of Ernest’s largest financial benefactors, providing support for Green Hills of Africa, Death in the Afternoon, and “The Snows of Kilimanjaro,” among others.
We invite scholarly submissions focusing on Ernest’s time in Arkansas; on his relationship to Pauline, Gus, or other Pfeiffers; or on any of the texts that have a connection to the Pfeiffer family (“A Day’s Wait,” A Farewell to Arms, Green Hills of Africa, “The Snows of Kilimanjaro,” “The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber,” and Death in the Afternoon, etc.). Submissions are due by June 15. Send submissions or inquiries to Adam Long adamlong_at_astate.edu.
