Since 1939, the College English Association has been a vibrant association of scholar-teachers, committed to excellence in teaching and professional development with 20 regional affiliates. This year (2009) is our 40th annual conference, celebrating the organizationís 70th anniversary.
General Conference Theme: Design
In addition, CEA welcomes proposals for presentations on the general conference theme, Design. We live in a world atomized into text messages and jump cuts, socially constructed snippets on networking sites, fragmented blogs and news bites, ones and zeroes. In such a context, is there still a role for conscious design - of literature, of art, of rhetoric, of learning? After the death of the author, who designs the texts we love to see, read, and study? Or do we make our own designations, sketching out the plot, shading in the design, creating meaning as we find it?
General Call for Papers
CEA also welcomes proposals for presentations in any of the areas English departments typically encompass, including literature, creative writing, composition, technical communication, linguistics, and film. We also welcome papers on areas that influence our work as academics, including student demographics, student/instructor accountability and assessment, student advising, academic leadership in departments and programs, and the place of the English department in the university.
