College English Association 49th Annual Conference (Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront, Saint Petersburg, Florida: 5-7 April 2018)Deadline: 1 Nov 2017
Conference Theme: BridgesContact details:
The College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in English studies, welcomes proposals for presentations on Travel and Literature for our 49th annual conference.
The Travel and Literature area at CEA is seeking submissions on any aspect of travel and literature, including but not limited to travelogues; travel and ecocriticism; regionalism; travel and identity; intercultural perspectives; etc. Theoretical and interdisciplinary approaches are welcome, as are papers concerning various genres and historical periods of literature. Of particular interest will be presentations that actualize the conference theme, BRIDGES, by building bridges between and among texts, disciplines, people, cultures, media, languages, and generations.
For our 2018 meeting, CEA invites papers and panels that explore the literary, the rhetorical, the pedagogical and the professional “bridges” of our field. How do writers encounter bridges of material, thought, culture, or time in their travels? How do bridges separate or consolidate, challenge and transform, facilitate or impede travellers and their texts? How do bridges function in landscapes of the literary, the rhetorical, the pedagogical and the professional?
All presenters at the 2018 CEA conference must become members of CEA by 1 January 2018. To join CEA, please visit our website.
