We invite papers on Empathy and Ethics in Film and Literature for the 38th
annual meeting of the CEA. The theme may be interpreted broadly, including,
but not limited to, the following: consideration of the portrayal of empathy
and/or ethics in literature and film, examination of the techniques that
elicit empathetic reactions in readers and viewers, and discussion of the
pedagogical uses of film and literature in exploring ethical issues.

Proposals should be submitted via the online database at by November 30.

When you submit your proposal, you may use a pull-down menu to indicate your
topic. Indicate at that pull-down menu that your submission should be
directed to Carol Osborne, chair of the Film and Literature panels.

To preserve time for discussion, CEA limits presentations to 15 minutes.

All presenters must become members of the College English Association by
January 1, 2007. For membership information, contact Joe Pestino at
