53rd Annual Conference Call for Proposals

53rd Annual TYCA-NE Conference in New York City

English at the Crossroads: Power and Possibilities

Thursday, October 11, 2018 - Saturday, October 13, 2018

Hosted by LaGuardia Community College, Queensborough Community College, and Borough of Manhattan Community College

With state legislatures increasing budget cuts and technology companies promising new avenues to education and on-site job training, the traditional mission of community colleges has come under scrutiny. However, these new challenges also bring new potential as community colleges have historically served as laboratories for institutional and classroom innovation. English and writing educators are in the powerful position to help students discover the potential and the value of their education in the workforce as well as in civil society at large.

We invite proposals that consider how the two-year college English educator can take advantage of this changing landscape.

Deadline for submissions is June 15, 2018.

The CUNY Humanities Alliance invites proposals from college students, graduate students, faculty, and administrators for interactive sessions that explore and celebrate the role of humanities within community colleges and across the broader landscape of higher education. For more information, please see CUNYHumanitiesAlliance.org. Proposals are due by March 31, 2018.
