The College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in English studies, welcomes proposals for presentations for our 47th annual conference. The conference will be held in Denver, CO from March 31 to April 2, 2016.
The 2016 theme is “Creation" and CEA invites papers and panels that explore the literary, the rhetorical, the pedagogical, and the professional “creations” of our fields. What do we create, hope our students will create, see or reconstruct in the creations of others?
The special panel chair for Book History welcomes proposals for papers and panels addressing the following topics:
- Composition, publication, and reception histories
- Textual criticism
- Print culture
- Book History on a budget (what to do when you don't have a rare book room)
- Book History in the classroom (teaching methodologies, curriculum development, collaboration, etc.)
- Book History centers (supporting research, consulting services, teaching faculty/students, etc.)
- The Future of Book History
Submit paper titles and abstracts (200-500 words) to http://cea-web.org/ by 1 November 2015. Submitting electronically involves setting up a user ID and then using that ID to log in in order to submit a proposal to the conference. If submitting a panel with multiple participants, please create a user ID for each proposed participant.
