The officers and Board
of Directors of the College English Association invite you to join us for the
44th Annual Conference of the College English Association at the Savannah
Riverfront Marriott Hotel in Savannah, Georgia (100 General McIntosh Blvd, Savannah,
GA 31401; Phone: 912-233-7722), April 4-6, 2013.
conference theme for 2013 is "Nature”: In earlier centuries, "Nature” set the
parameters, as Philip Round states, "of conversations about everything from
church doctrine to village order.” Often discussions of gender, character,
authorship, and even civil discourse turned to questions of "customary
precedent and natural law.” By the twentieth century "nature” was used to
delineate the new literary study of "nature writing,” while also used in
broader terms to question the changing nature of our society with the onset of
digital age, postmodernism, new views of gender and race construction, and even
changes within academia. What is the "nature” of the academia
today? How has the "nature” of publishing and authorship changed with the
digital age? How has the "nature” of our profession changed? In what
ways does "nature” define us? Or do we define "nature?” In addition, we welcome
presentations by experienced academics and graduate students on all areas of
literature, languages, film, composition, pedagogy, creative writing, and
professional writing. Proposals may interpret the CEA theme broadly.
