Please plan to join us for the 2023 conference of the College English Association, March 30 - April 1, at the Sheraton Gunter Hotel in beautiful San Antonio, Texas (see link to CFP below).


We are excited to announce that two of San Antonio's own will be keynote speakers for the event: San Antonio's Poet Laureate, Andrea "Vocab" Sanderson, and San Antonio College's Juanita Lawhn.


Additionally, the CEA Conference in San Antonio will introduce a new feature, “Roundtable Sessions.” These sessions are designed to encourage lively discussions of the conference’s theme. Each table will feature presenters who deliver short essays. These 500-word papers, rather than fully realized arguments, are meant to be kernels of ideas. With ample time for response from colleagues, the roundtable is thus a chance for presenters to try out with a live audience a notion, to discover other resources, or to begin imagining the next steps towards developing ideas into longer, more typical conference papers or even articles.


The Call for Papers (CFP) affords the opportunity to submit an abstract on a wide variety of topics such as literature, language, film, writing, pedagogy, and the profession itself.  You will find the CFP, as well as more information about the conference and the electronic submission process, under the “Conference” tab on our web site at https://nam02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cea-web.org%2F&data=05%7C01%7Cstacy.bailey%40unco.edu%7C88d4ec7ee1c747d2b43908da7e736b6c%7Cb4dce27cd088445499652b59a23ea171%7C0%7C0%7C637961331472812546%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000%7C%7C%7C&sdata=FKeXDliDtvJwitRhdl%2BgaW3hkC85O8bCJYTVodQYKC0%3D&reserved=0.  Submissions will be accepted from August 15, 2022 - November 1, 2022.
