CFP: Women’s Connection Panel (11/1/07; CEA, 3/27/08-3/29/08)
College English Association National Conference
March 27-29, 2008
St. Louis, Missouri
The Women’s Connection is now inviting papers and panels for the 39th annual meeting of the CEA. Our theme for this year’s conference is passages. The CEA could have chosen various terms to investigate this theme—travel, sojourn, migration—but the word “passages” not only suggests the many journeys we hope to explore in literature and film, but also signals the importance of the transitional moment, when one must leap into the unknown and face/embrace the change that follows. For the Women’s Connection, the theme is particularly exciting; women and the field of women’s studies have been on expansive journeys over the years, earning their rites (and “rights”) of “passage.” For our panels, we would further invite discussion about the passages we read and write as well as those we travel. Additionally, the CEA Conference invites papers or panels on all areas of literature, languages, film, composition, pedagogy, creative writing, and business/technical writing by experienced academics, as well as from young scholars and graduate students, that explore aspects of the conference theme. Note that the theme may be interpreted broadly.
Proposals must be submitted via the online database, http://english.ttu.edu/cea/conftool, by November 1st.
When you submit your proposal, you may use a pull-down menu to indicate your topic. Indicate at that pull-down menu that your submission should be directed to me, Brandy Schillace, chair of the Women’s Connection panels. (To preserve time for discussion, CEA limits presentations to 15 minutes.)
Note: All presenters must become members of the College English Association by
January 1, 2007. For membership information, contact Joe Pestino at firstname.lastname@example.org.
