Creating Humanities Communities along Wyoming's Hemingway Highway

Public educational programs related to the Hemingway Highway project including traveling exhibits, reading programs, community discussions, GPS-enabled cell phone app tours, writer symposia, humanities summits, and a related website.

The partners in this grant application (NWCCD/Sheridan College, Wyoming Humanities Council, Wyoming Institute for Humanities Research and the Ucross Foundation) are proposing an initiative to celebrate Ernest Hemingway in Wyoming. Hemingway will act as a springboard or cartographer of imaginative geographies that will help us establish and deepen connections among communities in Wyoming. Centered on the continued relevance of Hemingway as both writer and icon, several targeted activities will take advantage of Hemingway’s connections to the state to link and thus create humanities communities along what we are dubbing the Hemingway Highway. The result of these efforts will be a durable humanities network which includes the state’s one university, eight community colleges, public libraries, historical societies and arts organizations.
