Conference: “Sea Crossings: The Sea in Literature and Film”
The Caribbean Chapter of the College English Association (CEA-CC) is a 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.  CEA-CC has published a sold-out collection of critical essays based on the spring conference of 2005, Transgression and Taboo, and a collection of essays based on the fall conference of 2006, Our Watery World; and it has also published the proceedings of the fall conference of 2005, Narrating the Past, through Cambridge Scholars.
