The College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in
English studies, welcomes proposals for presentations on Native American
Literature for our 40th annual conference, celebrating the organization's
70th anniversary.
This special topic panel welcomes submissions on any aspect of Native
American Literature. Topics may include but are not limited to: Native
American literary separatism, indigenous theory and/or rhetorics, New
Critical approaches to indigenous literatures, environmentalism, pan-
Indianism, the uses and abuses of post-colonial theory for Native
American studies, as well as film. All submissions will be considered.
Abstracts must be submitted electronically using CEA’s database. For
information on how to submit, see the full CFP at
General Conference Theme: Design
In addition, CEA welcomes proposals for presentations on the general
conference theme, Design. We live in a world atomized into text messages
and jump cuts, socially constructed snippets on networking sites,
fragmented blogs and news bites, ones and zeroes. In such a context, is
there still a role for conscious design - of literature, of art, of
rhetoric, of learning? After the death of the author, who designs the
texts we love to see, read, and study? Or do we make our own
designations, sketching out the plot, shading in the design, creating
meaning as we find it?
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.
Submission: August 31-November 1, 2008
