  • You must be a graduate student, currently enrolled in a graduate program.
  • Send your completed conference paper electronically to the chair of the Graduate Student Development Committee at GSCommitteeCEA@gmail.comby 25 February. Please do not send drafts, abstracts, etc. You must send your completed, presentation-ready paper. Note: You must send the paper you will be presenting. Article-length essays that you plan on editing for presentation later are not acceptable and will be disqualified. Please remember that all presentations at CEA are limited to fifteen minutes, which would consist of about 8–10 pages of text (double-spaced, 12-point font, Times New Roman). When you send your paper, please indicate the program in which you are currently a student.
