Department of Languages and Literature
Please come to West Texas and join us in Abilene, February 21-23, 2013, for the joint annual meeting of the Conference of College Teachers of English and the Texas College English Association. All presentations will be held in Abilene Christian University’s new Hunter Welcome Center. Calls for papers and creative works are enclosed and appear on the CCTE website (cctetexas.wordpress.com). CCTE’s deadline is October 1, and TCEA’s is November 1.
Abilene boasts several engaging downtown attractions. The Thursday evening reception will be at the lovely National Center for Children’s Illustrated Literature, featuring an exhibit by illustrator Raul Colon. In addition, the Grace Museum, the Center for Contemporary Arts, Frontier Texas, and the historic Paramount Theater are all within a short stroll around downtown. At the registration and check-in tables, your conference materials will include a list of downtown and area restaurants and entertainment suggestions, several with special discounts for CCTE/TCEA attendees. The Residence Inn near ACU will hold a block of rooms for us until February 1 ($99 a night including shuttle and breakfast).
Please come for what I know will be a productive and stimulating conference. Our committee will do its best to make your experience memorable. Do let me know what we might do to make your stay more worthwhile.
