Call for Papers, CEA 2011 | FORTUNES
Submission deadline: November 1, 2010 at http://cea-web.org/
The College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in English studies, welcomes proposals for presentations for our 42nd annual conference. This year, we explore the theme of fortunes. Some of the issues we are interested in investigating are: How do film and television challenge and/or reinforce issues of class, politics, and poverty in American culture? To what extent do film and television fortune narratives express opinions on race, ethnic representations, immigration, religion, and culture identities? How has film and television responded to the future of racism, sexism, and homophobia? With the recent success of Fox’s Glee, ABC’s Modern Family, and Lisa Cholodenko’s The Kids Are All Right (2010), how has the increase of lesbian and gay narratives and characters in film and television shaped the visibility of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered (LGBT) issues as well as addressed the concerns of gender and sexuality? How do emerging technologies in cinema, like James Cameron’s Avatar (2009) and Chris Nolan’s Inception (2010), transform Hollywood productions? To what effect has the 3D boom influenced marketing strategies and altered moviegoing experiences? How have creative and imaginative filmmakers revolutionized Hollywood? Topics are not limited to these questions. While we are especially interested in proposals addressing the conference theme and/or pedagogy, all proposals will be considered.
Submission: August 15 - November 1, 2010
