Call for Papers, Scottish Literature and World Literature Panel at CEA 2018

April 5-7, 2018 | St. Petersburg, Florida

Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront

333 1st St South, Saint Petersburg, Florida 33701 | Phone: (727) 894-5000

The College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in English studies, welcomes proposals for presentations on Scottish Literature and World Literature for our 49th annual conference. Submit your proposal at http://www.cea-web.org. The Scottish Literature Panel this year will focus on bridging connections between Scottish literature and world literature, its readers and writers. It will focus on how Scottish writers conceive and represent these connections to the larger enterprise of “World Literature,” especially how Scottish identity is a part of its definition and designs.

Conference Theme

CEA welcomes proposals for presentations on the general conference theme: Bridges. The Sunshine Skyway Bridge crosses Tampa Bay from St. Petersburg, called the Sunshine City in honor of its Guinness Record for most consecutive days of sunshine (768). St. Petersburg is home to historic neighborhoods, distinguished museums, contemporary galleries, and a wide variety of dining, entertainment and shopping venues. St. Petersburg is also home to the College English Association’s 2018 national conference, where we invite you to join us at our annual meeting to explore the many bridges that connect places, texts, communities, words, and ideas.

Submission: August 15-November 1, 2017

For more information on how to submit, please see the full CFP at http://www.cea-web.org
