The College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in English studies, welcomes proposals for presentations on Grammar/Linguistics for our 49th annual conference. Submit your proposal at

Conference Theme: Bridges

CEA invites proposals from academics in all areas of literature, language, film, composition, pedagogy, and creative, professional, and technical writing. We are especially interested in presentations that build bridges between and among texts, disciplines, people, cultures, media, languages, and generations.

Proposals for individual or panel presentations by language scholars, rhetoricians, writing instructors, and grammar enthusiasts are solicited in all areas of interest related to the discipline, including (but not limited to) the following:

  • Bridges between disciplines, languages, or generations
  • Bridges between races, classes, cultures, regions, genders, or sexualities.
  • Cultural or ideological bridges in literary, scholarly, or theoretical works
  • The bridge as construct, form, metaphor, motif, or icon
  • Bridges between theory and practice, reading and writing, writer and audience
  • Building bridges between teaching and scholarship; faculty and administrators; professors and students
  • Digital humanities as a bridge between worlds
  • What bridges connect, support, and pass over

General Call for Papers

CEA also welcomes proposals for presentations in any of the areas English departments typically encompass, including literature criticism and scholarship, 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.
