The TCEA, a rapidly growing organization, is the Texas affiliate of the national College English Association. Meeting in conjunction with the Texas-based Conference of College Teachers of English on the first weekend of March each year, TCEA organizes several sessions of scholarly papers and creative writing works by and/or about Texas scholars and writers. TCEA also hosts a breakfast and morning speaker each year at the conference.
Dr. Deborah McCollister was our 2014 conference breakfast keynote speaker. Dr. McCollister presented a superb talk on her experiences in Lithuania: "From Cowboy Boots to Snow Boots: A Frontier Spirit in Lithuania."
This coming year’s conference will be hosted by College of the Mainland, March 5-7, 2015, in the Galveston/South Shore/Kemah area.
Its theme for the 2015 conference will be "Texas Memories: Converging Past & Present in Arts, Literatures, & Landscapes" (see Call for Papers). One of the presented papers from the TCEA sessions
is selected each year for inclusion in CCTE Studies, published
in the fall of each conference year.
