The Caribbean Chapter of the College English Association’s (CEA-CC) annual conference will be held on campus from Thursday, March 12 to Friday, March 13, in the Celis building.

The theme for this year is Disability Studies and presentations relate to disability and pedagogy, disability in the Caribbean, disability and gender, and disability and identity, among other topics.

The CEA-CC is part of the network of 20 affiliates that form the national College English Association (CEA), a professional organization of teacher-scholars founded in the United States in 1939. Primarily based on the island of Puerto Rico, the Caribbean Chapter has promoted the study and research of the various fields that fall under the umbrella of “English” for over forty years. In addition to themes related to education, the conferences hosted by the CEA-CC have focused on themes related to literature and cultural studies. These scholarly meetings have successfully brought together academics from the Caribbean and throughout the world, providing a forum for many topics of interest and relevance to its members and to the region.
