Call for Papers: Travel and Literature at CEA 2020
March 26-28, 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 Travel and Literature for our 51st annual conference. Submit your proposal at www.cea-web.org.

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, TIDES, as it applies to travelers across America, around the world, and through time and space. How do writers articulate TIDES around and through the places, spaces, experiences, texts, and selves of their travels?

CONFERENCE THEME: TIDES
CEA welcomes proposals for presentations on the general conference theme: Tides. The College English Association’s 51st national conference will be held on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, where the tides shape the land and the culture, from food and drink to music and literature. Whether bolstered or battered by the tide, Hilton Head survives and thrives. The island’s fame as a vacation destination is paralleled by its rich and diverse cultural history, with still-vibrant Gullah/Geechee communities and Lowcountry traditions of hospitality. 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.

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.

SUBMISSIONS ACCEPTED: August 15—November 1, 2019
For more information on how to submit, please see the full CFP at www.cea-web.org.

MEMBERSHIP:
All presenters at the 2020 CEA conference must become members of CEA by January 1, 2020. To join CEA, please go to www.cea-web.org.
