The College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in English studies, welcomes proposals for presentations for our 42nd annual conference.

Submission: August 15 - November 1, 2010
Please see the submission instructions at http://cea-web.org/

Conference Theme: Fortunes
Money, luck, friendship, health, a warm place to sleep. 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.
