COLLEGE ENGLISH ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE
The College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in English studies, welcomes proposals for presentations on Native American Literature for our 45th annual conference.
Submission deadline: November 1, 2013
Special Topic: Native American Literature
This Special Topics panel is perfectly suited to address this year’s conference theme, Horizons. While indigenous peoples have always had an eye on the past, mindful of how ineluctably bound it is to the present, they too are always looking to the future and the ongoing survival of the people and their ways of living and being in the world. Papers that engage this year's conference theme, then, are particularly welcome. However, this panel also welcome papers that address any issue relevant to Native American literature/culture, including, but not limited to, (mis)representations of indigenous peoples, the struggle for land rights, material/cultural rhetorics, literary separatism, and transnational perspectives on Native American literature.
For our 2014 meeting, CEA invites papers and panels that explore the literary, the pedagogical, and the professional “horizons” of our field. We welcome presentations by experienced academics and graduate students on all areas of literature, languages, film, composition, pedagogy, creative writing, and professional writing. Proposals may interpret the CEA theme broadly, including—but not limited to—the past and future of literature, language, composition, technology, text, the writer, the poet, the classroom, the internet, gender, and globalism.
