Boundaries and Bridges: English Studies in the Borderlands
The Mission Statement of the College English Association (CEA) informs members that the organization acts as an umbrella under which a broad range of interests gather together, including: literature, language, linguistics, composition, creative writing, women's and minority studies, journalism, technical communication, speech, American studies, English as a Second Language, and popular culture, among others. In light of this mission statement that embraces multiple disciplines, the Caribbean Chapter of the CEA—situated in a unique location that synthesizes the Caribbean islands and their varied cultures with North and Latin American, European, African, and indigenous traditions—invites papers for its annual conference that explore meeting places between the disciplines of English Studies, interdisciplinary studies in the field of English, and the borderlands of space and place as explored through the disciplines that comprise English Studies.
Proposals are welcome on, but not limited to, the following topics:
• Caribbean Studies;
NB: If you are submitting a panel proposal, you only need to submit one abstract that includes all presenters’ names and contact information.
All accepted presenters are required to become members of the Caribbean Chapter of the College English Association. Conference registration is included in the membership fee.
