Call for Papers

“The Post-Disciplinary Academy”

9 March 2019

Keynote Panel: “Navigating the Meaning of (Post-)Disciplinarity in the Academy”

Location: Bowie State University, Bowie, MD

“The Post-Disciplinary Academy” is the theme for 2019’s CEA-MAG Conference. This year’s theme is prompted by an increasingly urgent need to consider the traditional canon of disciplines in the academy in ways that question, problematize, radicalize, negotiate, or otherwise investigate the nature of disciplinarity, and post-, cross-, trans-, multi-, inter- and intradisciplinarity in English, Modern Languages, the Humanities and STEM subjects, the Social Sciences, and beyond. We therefore invite papers, panels, and one-minute “flash presentations” from academics in higher education, AP instructors, and graduate students on any topic which is likely to be of interest to members.


Submissions:  Please email your paper abstracts (of 500 words or fewer) or panel proposals by 6 January 2019 to La Tanya Rogers, Program Committee Chair, at or One-minute flash presenters should send their proposals to Horacio Sierra at Please include “CEA-MAG” in the subject line of all submissions. Acceptance letters will be sent out in late January.


Paper abstracts, panel proposals, and flash presentation proposals should include the following information: Name; institutional affiliation (if applicable); mailing address (including zip code); phone number and email address; title for the proposed presentation; abstract of no more than 500 words for a regular paper or panel and 100 words for a “flash presentation” (papers at the conference will be limited to 15 minutes; flash presentations will be limited to one minute); A-V needs, if any; special needs, if any.
