The 41st Annual College English Association Conference, March 25-7, 2010-San Antonio

updated: 
Tuesday, September 29, 2009 - 8:54pm
College English Association

Conference Theme:
Voices

"And in my voice most welcome shall you be." As You Like It 2:4.87

San Antonio. Images of the River Walk merge with the memories of its most famous location, the Alamo. Remember it, the voices from the past call out, and we do.

Those voices on opposing sides of its walls, representing Santa Anna and Sam Houston, spoke for two distinctly diverse cultures. And within those cultures were voices and texts that influenced the actions during that struggle – significant cultural markers of time, place, and being.

[Last minute CFP] Seeing Things: Dreams, Visions and Hallucinations/ NeMLA 2010

updated: 
Sunday, September 27, 2009 - 2:10pm
Anna Strowe

This panel explores the connections between reality and imagined or imaginary worlds by examining the ways in which sight, and in particular the seeing of things that are not present or do not exist, contributes to knowledge and understanding. The faculty of vision is often a metaphor for understanding and learning, and the mystical or otherworldly vision represents not only an explanation for the integration and processing of new information into an older worldview, but a metaphorical space in which personal growth can be demonstrated through "seeing" new connections and truths.
