Using Digital Tools to Immerse the iGeneration in Hemingway’s Geographies
Discusses classroom strategies for separating Hemingway’s writing from his mythic legend. Johnston recommends reputable digital resources, including maps, videos, and archives, that illuminate historical and geographical contexts of Hemingway’s literary spaces without perpetuating his exaggerated celebrity status. Such virtual immersion familiarizes students with Hemingway’s distant locates, enabling their fuller engagement with the works. Focuses on locations in The Sun Also Rises, A Farwell to Arms, The Old Man and the Sea, and elsewhere.
