Call
for Papers TEACHER EDUCATION at CEA 2010

The 41st
Annual College English Association Conference

Sheraton Gunter Hotel; 209 East
Houston Street, San Antonio, TX 78205

March
25-7, 2010 – San Antonio, Texas

www2.widener.edu/~cea

 

The
College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in English
studies, welcomes  proposals for presentations on Teacher Education  for our 41st annual conference.  Please join our collegial community in gorgeous
South Texas this Spring.  Below, read
more about our THEME for this year's
conference as well as our GENERAL PROGRAM.

 

Conference Theme:
Voices

“And
in my voice most welcome shall you be.” As You Like It 2:4.87

 

San
Antonio. Images of the River Walk merge with the memories of its most famous
location, the Alamo. Remember it, the voices from the past call out, and we do.

 

Those
voices on opposing sides of its walls, representing Santa Anna and Sam Houston,
spoke for two distinctly diverse cultures. And within those cultures were
voices and texts that influenced the actions during that struggle – significant
cultural markers of time, place, and being.

 

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.

 

In
the shadow of San Antonio’s famous symbol of voices that call for attention and
allegiance, College English Association asks you to submit papers on any aspect
of the following topics:

women’s studies, and multicultural studies; pedagogical approaches: class

composition and rhetoric; creative writing; popular culture; as well as those
topics that relate to our lives as academics: student advising,; grade
inflation; assessment techniques (for student and teacher); administrative
posts and service positions; or anything relating to the changing identity of
the English department: how it is perceived, appreciated, or utilized by the
university.
