“If we had a keen vision of all that is ordinary in human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow or the squirrel’s heart beat, and we should die of that roar which is the other side of silence.” —George Eliot
“And time yet for a hundred indecisions,
And for a hundred visions and revisions,
Before the taking of a toast and tea.” —T. S. Eliot
New Orleans is one of America’s most culturally and historically rich cities. The birthplace of jazz, it is also notable for its proud literary heritage. Its iconic setting has inspired generations of American writers, such as Tennessee Williams, Kate Chopin, William Faulkner, John Kennedy Toole, and Anne Rice. From Easy Rider to Treme, its distinctive sights have been memorialized in film and television to form an indelible part of America’s cultural imagination. Renowned for its Mardi Gras celebrations, it is also recognized for bravery and vision in the face of devastation after Hurricane Katrina. It is a city that has had to rebuild and reinvent itself.
The College English Association celebrates its 50th anniversary with its 2019 national conference, to be held in the heart of the French Quarter. We invite you to join us at our annual meeting to explore the theme of vision and revision in presentations that feature topics relating to vision and/or revision in texts, disciplines, people, cultural studies, media, and pedagogy.
Thank you for your commitment to our 50th Conference. The response has been so strong that a third overflow hotel, The Westin New Orleans Canal Place, as a courtesy, is now available.
