College English Association conference will take place at IUP on March 10–11, 2017, at the Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex.
Serving English professionals since before 1970, the Pennsylvania
College English Association provides a forum for the debate and
discussion of ideas surrounding literature and literacy studies. It
strives to promote and foster inquiry into our world as it is presented
in literature of all genres. The PCEA also actively strives to give
voice to those who endeavor to create new kinds of literacies.
The theme of this year’s conference is “Comics and/as Rhetoric: (Anti)Static Narratives,” featuring panel presentations on the literary, historical, and cultural analysis of comics and the use of comics as teaching tools.
In collaboration with IUP’s Theater Department, the conference also features a live-action performance of the popular comic book series Kill Shakespeare at 5:00 p.m. in McVitty Auditorium.
The conference keynote speaker, Conor McCreery, will talk about his work co-creating the comic books series Kill Shakespeare at at 7:00 p.m. in the Kovalchick Complex, Room 6.
