CCTE and TCEA submissions are now closed.
CCTE welcomes scholarly papers, creative writings and panels in all areas of literature and language, including linguistics and language studies, as well as the teaching of these areas. CCTE also welcomes papers and panel proposals in teaching writing, ESL, developmental writing, and the virtual classroom. Because CCTE is meeting in Kingsville this conference year, CCTE especially encourages papers and panels on the theme of borders, margins, and liminal zones relating to questions of identity, space, place, and time.
TCEA welcomes proposals that reflect dichotomies in Texas culture, geography, and experiences: light and shadow, violence and peace, absence and presence, instinct and intention, glory and grief, rebirth and death, consummation and emptiness, victory and defeat. Dichotomies define our state and the experiences of its people, who have enjoyed the harvest of great beauty and the impact of terrible destruction. TCEA welcomes fresh approaches, scholarly or creative, to the unique experiences of how Texas residents have negotiated and continue to negotiate the dichotomies of our great past, present, and future. TCEA welcomes original Texas-related creative lyrics, lore, and literature as well as critical analyses of each, including language, drama, film, popular culture, music, dance, visual arts, and photography.
