Minds on Fire: Academic Crossroads--ICEA Conference Oct. 24, 2014
full name / name of organization:
Indiana College English Association
Indiana College English Association 2014 Conference
Keynote Roundtable Discussion: “Burning Questions We Ask in the Heat of the Moment” ICEA and CEA board members together with PUC faculty will discuss the role of English as a discipline, considering questions such as “What roles are professional organizations, mentors, and faculty to serve in the future? What roles will Liberal Arts play? How do market forces shape our discipline?” Keynote participants will offer information from their own institutions’ perspectives prior to the luncheon. After lunch, breakout sessions will provide further food for thought on the topic of the changing roles of professionals in higher education.
Proposal Submissions: We invite faculty and graduate students to submit proposals for individual papers, roundtable discussions, panels, and creative readings on the conference theme or on related topics within English and its connected fields of inquiry that can be examined from a wide array of angles. The list proposes a series of topics and themes that allow for theoretical, practical, pedagogical, and creative inquiries and is certainly not exhaustive.
All proposals must include your name, presentation title, college or university affiliation, mailing address, e-mail address, phone number, and presentation technology you may require.
• Individual critical proposals should include a 300-word proposal.
Graduate Students’ Presentation Prize Competition: ICEA sponsors a competition with cash prizes for graduate students who compete and present at ICEA. Prizes will be awarded for best scholarly and creative papers. Graduate students who plan to compete for these prizes must submit complete papers, along with the abstract. Please contact the conference coordinator for details.
