Call for Papers, Early American Literature at CEA 2009
70th Anniversary Conference | March 26-28, 2009 | Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
The Omni William Penn Hotel, 530 William Penn Place, Pittsburgh, PA 15219;
(412) 281-7100
The College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in English
studies, welcomes
 proposals for presentations on Transatlantic Literature for our 40th
annual conference, celebrating the organization’s 70th anniversary.
This special topics panel welcomes submissions for all aspects of Early
American Literture. While we are especially interested in proposals
addressing the conference theme and/or pedagogy, all proposals will be
considered. Abstracts must be submitted electronically using CEA’s
database. For information on how to submit, see the full CFP at
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.
Submission: August 31-November 1, 2008
