The Ernest Hemingway Society will hold its 16th biennial international conference in Venice, Italy, from 22-27 June 2014.

The conference will be hosted by Venice International University on the spectacular island of San Servolo.

The island is a ten minute boat ride from Piazza San Marco. Click on the picture above for Venice International University campus details. All paper presentations and panels will be at VIU Conference Center on the island.

In addition to enjoying one of the most beautiful cities in the world, we will explore the Veneto, a region of the world Hemingway held dear and immortalized in Across the River and Into the Trees. We will take a day trip to Fossalta di Piave, the site of Hemingway’s wounding, and San Michele al Tagliamento, where we will visit Villa Ivancich. Conference attendees are welcome to explore the other treasures of the Veneto or northern Italy individually or in small groups, and we will be happy to provide information to make those excursions convenient for you.
