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

19th Century America:
Fortune can be defined as: Money, luck, friendship, health, a warm place to sleep. As America moved into the 19th century, and experienced the abolition of slavery, the Civil War, the Gold Rush, the influx of immigrants, and the Industrial Revolution, concepts of "fortune" changed radically. Or did they? This panel seeks to explore how "fortune" was portrayed in 19th century American literature.

Submission: August 15 - November 1, 2010
