Call for Papers, Pedagogy at CEA 2010
The College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in English studies, welcomes proposals for presentations on Pedagogy for our 41st annual conference.
English classrooms, both those that focus on literature and those that focus on composition, are full of voices. The texts that we read, the dialogues that we have, and the essays that we write each underline the importance of voice to education. Papers are sought that investigate the different manifestations of voice within the classroom; both practical and theoretical responses are encouraged.
General Conference Theme: Voices
In addition, CEA welcomes proposals for presentations on the general conference theme, Voices.
Before and after the struggle there, writers everywhere have reflected and influenced the events of their day, and from their experience, the great writers have created texts that have become ageless connections to what is past, or passing, or to come.
Their voices also call for us to acknowledge or recognize beauty or to realize or remember significant lessons -- perhaps via a character like Professor Farber from Fahrenheit 451 or a place like a raft on a river in Huckleberry Finn -- with an urgency no less than the Alamo’s. This correspondence we find within ourselves is our human condition -- but it is the capacity to listen for and to those whose message or memory is unlike our own that makes us scholars. Our voices blend with those we admire or abhor -- creating a text, which (if it stands the test of taste and time) will blend with still other voices, like those of our students, newly discovering “a peak in Darien”-- all wishing to be heard and remembered.
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.
