The Exiled and / or Expatriate Artist

The Caribbean Chapter of the College English Association (CEA-CC) is preparing a collection of critical essays to be published on the topic of the 2009 Annual Conference, Art and the Artist in Society.

The 2009 Conference of the CEA-CC was a multidisciplinary conference that featured presentation on literature, fine arts, and even the performing arts. We are looking for essays to supplement the works presented in the conference on the specific topic of the exiled and / or expatriate artist. We are interested in papers that analyze the exiled and / or expatriate artist work in light of their relation to his/her homeland and/or the communities from his/her homeland in his/her new home (new country of residence). More specifically, the papers can deal with the following subtopics, but are not limited to them:

*Representations of the homeland and the new home*

*Reception of the artists in their homeland; in particular writer's that are writing in the language of their new home (for examples: Hispanic artists in the U.S. writing in English)*

*Inclusion or exclusion of these artist in the artistic canon of their homeland*

*The artist's role in the formation and maintenance of a national identity in their new home*

*Bicultural and bilingual texts: the artist and his work as a meeting points of two cultures (that of his homeland and his new home)*

Papers should have a length of 15-20 pages, double spaced, in Times New Roman letter font, size twelve, and they should include a complete bibliography of the works used. If you are interested, you can submit your paper via e-mail to José Jiménez-Justiniano at cea.caribbeanchapter@gmail.com by September 21, 2009. The papers should be submitted as an attachment in MS Word document. For more information you can visit our website at http://blogs.uprm.edu/ceacc and or write to us at the e-mail provided above.
