“Texas Heritage: Inheritances and Legacies

In the summer of 2015, The San Antonio Missions were designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the first in Texas, which provokes considerations of the complex inheritances from colonizers and native peoples--their languages, symbols, religions, architecture, modes of survival, and technologies.  

Scholars and creative writers are invited to submit proposals that explore a wide range of Texas heritage and the legacies that have been interwoven to form our personal and collective cultures today. We welcome fresh approaches, scholarly or creative, to the traditions and customs that link us to our ancestors and their challenges, defeats, advances, confusions, intolerances, reforms, and radical realignments. We welcome original Texas-related creative lyrics, lore and literature as well as critical analyses of each, including language, drama, film, popular culture, music, dance, visual arts, and photography.

Reading/Presentation Time: 15 minutes maximum (about 8 pages). Scholarly submissions (never previously presented or published) may be complete papers or abstracts of 250 words. Poetry, fiction or creative non-fiction must be complete when submitted. Submissions will be judged by the TCEA Board through a blind review process.

(CCTE officers and councilors are welcome to submit a proposal to the TCEA.)

Send submissions (via email) by November 1, 2016 to Dr. Karen Dodwell at
