College English Association National Conference
March 27-29, 2008
St. Louis, Missouri

We invite papers on African-American Literature for the 39th annual
meeting of the CEA. This year’s topic is “Passages.” Proposals that
offer new and inventive readings on African-American Literature will also
be considered. Please interpret the conference theme broadly including
but not limited to the following areas:

African-American migration literature
African-American spiritual journeys
The black experience and the coming-of-age story
The slave narrative--the path from slavery to freedom
The Middle Passage
Passage from Segregation to Integration--success or failure?

Proposals should be submitted via the online database at
http://english.ttu.edu/cea/conftool by November 1st, 2007.

When you submit your proposal, you may use a pull-down menu to indicate
your topic. Indicate at that pull-down menu that your submission should
be directed to me, Shelia Collins, chair of the African-American
Literature panels.

To preserve time for discussion, CEA limits presentations to 15 minutes.

All presenters must become members of the College English Association by
January 1, 2008. For membership information, contact Joe Pestino at
