Abstract:Who owns Hemingway? The commodification of this literary icon is questioned by a new initiative that asks teens to re-vision Ernest Hemingway as represented by his sister, mother, school friends, and young self. Partnering with the Ernest Hemingway Foundation of Oak Park, with whom the library shares unique stewardship of the Hemingway Archives, Oak Park Public Library has begun a participatory digitization initiative that includes the Illinois State Library and its Illinois Digital Archive, and Oak Park School District 97 to position teens as digital curators. After months of negotiations, never-before-digitized Hemingway artifacts will be situated within local contexts by teens in Hemingway’s hometown; challenging lines of traditional scholarship. The Hemingway Archives have been housed in the library’s museum-grade vaults over a decade, limiting access to the humanities scholarly community; until now. The project focuses on Hemingway's Oak Park: birth-young adulthood (1899-c.1919) with an emphasis on everyday experience; ending with his return after World War I.
