Coastal Carolina University's Department of English is hosting the 2002 Georgia/Carolinas College English Association (GAC-CEA) annual conference on Friday, Feb. 22 and Saturday, Feb. 23 in the Edwards Building Recital Hall on Coastal's campus. The event is free and open to the public.
English professors from Coastal, Clemson University, Francis Marion University, Georgia Southern University, Kennesaw State University and Savannah State University will present papers responding to this year's conference theme "Literature in Times of Crisis: Responding to September 11."
Sessions include "Writing, Healing and Discovery," "Writing About Crisis," "Islamic Literature," and "Literature and War."
The College English Association (CEA) - an international organization for college English teachers - studies and promotes the reading and teaching of literature and examines how literature
and composition are taught in the classroom. The Georgia-Carolinas College English Association (GAC-CEA) is the local affiliate of the national CEA. It draws its membership from the ranks of college English teachers in Georgia, South Carolina and western North Carolina.
