College English Association - Caribbean Chapter

Art, Adaptations, and the Highbrow Lowbrow Cultures

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 adaptations and the merging of high brow and low brow art. We are particularly interested in papers that explore and/or discuss the adaptation of canonical works and their reception; how the adaptation and its reception show a movement towards the democratization of art or the reinforcement of artistic and cultural hierarchy.

Papers should be 10-15 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.
