This year's conference theme is particularly relevant to Native American/Indigenous/First Nations peoples. While all topics related to Indigenous literatures will be considered, including Indigenous poetics, Indigenous rhetorics, as well as issues of sovereignty, separatism, and transnationalism, papers that address the conference theme will be especially welcome.

For our 2016 meeting, the College English Association invites papers and panels that explore the literary, the rhetorical, the pedagogical and the professional “creations” of our fields.

To create, to study the creation of others and thus re-create in various manifestations of potential meaning, to be a creator of a text or meaning or environment, to stimulate creativity or creation in others—creation is at the heart of what we do. That perhaps wondrous act or process or phenomenon of bringing something into being that did not exist before, creation may be recognized in writing, in analysis, in the coming together of disparate elements in a class discussion during which the lecturer sees the lights come on or hears a student’s perspective remarkable in its profundity and originality. The creations of evolving conceptions of text, publication and authorship are changing so rapidly that the profession struggles to provide
meaningful definition. What do we create, hope our students will create, see or reconstruct in the creations of others?

We encourage 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 conference theme broadly; prospective participants may find the following suggestions helpful:

•The creation or re-creation of genre, style, form or convention

•The creation of character, setting, conflict motif in literature

•The creation and re-creation of definition regarding authorship,
publication and scholarship

•Creation as a religious, cultural or teleological concept in literary or scholarly works

•The creation of self and/or voice in fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry and critical analyses

•The creation of pedagogy, learning environment, milieu, or situation for the classroom, workshop, seminar, internship or mentorship program

•The creation of curricula, learning objectives or outcomes, assessment and other institutional documents

•The creation of programs for class, culture or gender studies

•The creation of service-learning opportunities and administration

• The creation and re-creation of canons, schools, traditions or influence

•The creation of successful dual enrollment and secondary school
college-credit programs

•The creation of meaning in literary analysis

•The creation and re-creation of discourse communities and collaboration

•Creation as apprehension and/or comprehension

•The impossibility of creation
