The College English Association invites papers on any aspect of the short story, preferably with reference to the conference's 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 in St. Petersburg, Florida, CEA invites papers and panels that explore Fortune as both a daunting challenge and an elusive ideal. For more information, please see the full Call For Papers at
Papers relating to the short story--from any country, in any language, from any period--are welcome. Submit abstracts by Nov. 1, 2010 to Dean Baldwin,
