Call for Papers:
The College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in English studies, welcomes proposals for presentations on Caribbean Literature for our 53rd annual conference. Submit your proposal at

The general conference theme is “confluence,” so we are especially interested in presentations that feature topics relating to our theme of confluence in texts, disciplines, people, cultural studies, media, and pedagogy.

We welcome individual and panel presentation proposals that address Caribbean literature in general, including—but not limited to—the following possible themes:Convergence: blending the past and the present—or dividing it
Individuality: struggling to find the self in the many; the value of standing alone
Heritage: recognizing those who came before and their influence on us now
Transcultural life: living in-between; creating a new space
Revision: re-seeing the parts that have created the whole; the dangers of privileging one
Reclamation: uncovering the forgotten voices; contrasting with the dominant voice

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 deadline: November 1, 2022. For more information on how to submit, please see the full CFP at

Membership: All presenters at the CEA 2023 conference must become members of CEA by January 1, 2023. To join CEA, please go to
