Call For Papers

Call for Papers, Teacher Education as Social Justice Education at CEA 2021
April 8-10, 2021 | Birmingham, Alabama
Sheraton Hotel, Birmingham | 2101 Richard Arrington Jr Blvd N, Birmingham, AL 35203

The College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in English studies, welcomes proposals for presentations on [special topic title] for our 52nd annual conference. Submit your proposal at www.cea-web.org

In keeping with the CEA Conference theme of Justice, we seek papers that address the question “What does it mean to teach for Social Justice?” How can teacher educators prepare their teacher candidates to recognize and act on the power they have to affect social change? And how do we prepare teacher candidates empower the students who will arrive to their classrooms? What classroom practices can we incorporate that encourage students to challenge injustice, fight for democratic principles, and act as agents of change in their profession and in their communities?


Conference Theme: Justice
CEA welcomes proposals for presentations on the general conference theme: Justice. Birmingham’s notoriety as a focal point of the Civil Rights Movement, including the Birmingham Campaign, the imprisonment of Martin Luther King, Jr., and the writing of his “Letter from Birmingham Jail” is matched by the city’s renown for forging steel, founding Veteran’s Day, and hosting the USA’s second-oldest drag queen pageant. Whether it is past conflicts over racism or current struggles over race, the rights of women, or the LGBTQ community, Birmingham and Alabama are places where the right to justice for groups and individuals has been ignored, debated, defended, and championed. Birmingham is also home to the College English Association’s 2021 national conference, and we invite you to join us to explore the many ways in which justice has been portrayed in literature, taught in classrooms, and fought for by both individuals and communities.
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 justice in texts, disciplines, people, cultural studies, media, and pedagogy. For your proposal, you might consider these concepts related to Justice:
 resistance: protesting injustice
 equality: shifting perceptions of race, class, cultures, regions, genders, sexualities
 discourse: employing rhetoric and argument
 reclamation: spotlighting forgotten or unknown texts, authors, and cultures
 physicality: placing the body/publishing the text in contested spaces
 movements: challenging the status quo through ideas, genre, or form
 legitimacy: considering literature and the law
 education: teaching empathy and dialog
 individuality: combining the personal and political
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-October 1, 2020
