The College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in English studies, welcomes proposals for presentations on Popular Culture for our 41st annual conference.

Building on the general conference theme of "voice," this panel takes the following issues in popular culture as starting points for its inquiry: culture and voice; talking back; finding a voice; speaking truth to power; emerging voices; suppressed voices; oppositional voices; audience voices; gendered voices; sexuality and voice; marginalized voices; disability and voice; race and voice; young voices; economic class and voice; the environment and voice.

General Conference Theme: Voices
In addition, CEA welcomes proposals for presentations on the general conference theme, Voices.

General Call for Papers
