Call for Papers, Graphic Novels at CEA 2020

March 26-18, 2020 | Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Hilton Head Marriott Resort and Spa


The College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in English studies, welcomes proposals for presentations on Graphic Novels for our 51st annual conference. Submit your proposal at www.cea-web.org

CEA seeks papers exploring graphic novels as literary works that serve as tools for teaching students through traditional analysis as novels and/or by providing new perspectives or insights about the human condition. 


Conference Theme

CEA welcomes proposals for presentations on the general conference theme: Tides. The College English Association’s 51st national conference will be heldon Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, where the tides shape the landand the culture, from food and drink to music and literature. Hilton Head’s fame as a vacation destination is paralleled by the island’s rich and diverse cultural history, with its still-vibrant Gullah/Geechee community and Lowcountry traditions of hospitality. Whether bolstered or battered by the tide, Hilton Head survives and thrives. The South Carolina Lowcountry has inspired literature by Edgar Allan Poe and contemporary fiction and poetry from writers such as Gloria Naylor, Pat Conroy, Anne Rivers Siddons, Dorothea Benton Frank, and Mary Alice Monroe, while the Lowcountry and Hilton Head have appeared in countless films.

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 feature topics relating to tides in texts, disciplines, people, cultural studies, media, and pedagogy. For your proposal you might consider these concepts related to Tides:

 

·     inevitability: shifts and trends relating to race, class, cultures, regions, genders, sexualities

·     mutability and mutation: poetry of loss, change, and death

·     evanescence: reclaiming texts that have vanished and reevaluating the canonical

·     liminality: shifting borders in genre and form

·     ephemerality: popular culture and forgetting

·     resistance: pedagogical theory and practice

·     transcendence: magical realism 

·     movement: avant gardeor experimental literature

·     erosion and deposition: the new topography of instruction

 

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.
