Call for Papers, CEA 2011
42nd Annual Conference | March 31 - April 2, 2011
St. Petersburg, Florida
Submission deadline: November 1, 2010 at http://cea-web.org

“Tis but fortune; all is fortune,” Shakespeare warns us. Money, prosperity, luck, friendship, health, a warm place to sleep—or a lack thereof--matters. The College English Association, a collegial gathering of scholar-teachers in English studies, invites proposals for presentations on 16th and 17th century British literature for our 42nd annual conference on the theme of fortune.

Submission: August 15 - November 1, 2010
Please see the submission instructions at http://cea-web.org/. While papers that address the conference theme will be given priority, others will be welcome and carefully considered as well.

Conference Theme: Fortunes
In a world staggered by economic decline and natural catastrophes, what are the new boundaries of success and misfortune? How do art, literature, and the classroom respond to the Rota Fortunae? For our 2011 meeting, CEA invites papers and panels that explore Fortune as both a daunting challenge and an elusive ideal. For more information, please see the full CFP at http://cea-web.org/

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.
