Call for Papers, Design 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 Rhetoric and
Composition for our 40th annual conference, celebrating the organization’s
70th anniversary.

We invite papers on Rhetoric and Composition that draw on the conference
theme "Design." Proposals may conceive the conference theme broadly.
Practical and theoretical responses are encouraged.

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
