The College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in English studies, welcomes proposals for presentations on Texas confluences for our 52nd annual conference. Submit your proposal electronically by November 1, 2022, through our conference management database housed at the following web address: https://www.conftool.pro/cea2023.


For this area, we are particularly interested in proposals that relate Texas to the conference theme of confluence from academics in all areas of literature, language, film, composition, pedagogy, and creative, professional, and technical writing as they relate to Texas and confluence. For your proposal, you might consider a variety of concepts:


  • Convergence: blending the past and the present—or dividing it
  • Individuality: struggling to find the self in the many; the value of standing alone
  • Heritage: recognizing those who came before and their influence on us now
  • Transcultural life: living in-between; creating a new space
  • Revision: re-seeing the parts that have created the whole; the dangers of privileging one
  • Reclamation: uncovering the forgotten voices; contrasting with the dominant voice


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.

Submission: August 15-November 1, 2022

Proposals should be between 250 and 500 words in length and should include a title. Please note that only one proposal may be submitted per participant. Notifications of proposal status will be sent in early December. For more information on how to submit, please see the full CFP at www.cea-web.org
