Article by Repeating Islands

The Ernest Hemingway Museum at Finca Vigía, in coordination with the Hemingway Chair of the International Institute of Journalism and the Cuban National Cultural Heritage Council, announce the 14th International Ernest Hemingway Colloquium to be held June 20-23, 2013, in Havana, Cuba.

The purpose of the event is to promote the exchange of information among similar specialists and institutions related with the Ernest Hemingway Museum and to discuss the most recent research of the life and work of the writer. In addition, the Colloquium will commemorate the 90th anniversary of Hemingway’s first published work, “Three Stories, and Ten Poems,” and the 60th anniversary of his Pulitzer Prize.

Dr. Michael Connors’ presentation at the colloquium is sponsored by Fundación Amistad (of which he is a board member). Fundación Amistad is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to foster mutual understanding and respect between the peoples of the United States and Cuba. To advance its mission, the foundation sponsors educational exchanges and programs, research projects, and community outreach initiatives to deepen knowledge and appreciation of culture, history, and society on both sides.
