Samford University will host the 65th annual conference of the Association of College English Teachers of Alabama (ACETA) March 8-9.

The 2013 ACETA conference is focused on civil rights, and will open this Friday afternoon with a keynote address at Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. Samford History Department chair Jonathan Bass—nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for his book, “Blessed Are the Peacemakers”–will present the address.

On March 9 at Samford, more than 20 presentations in concurrent sessions will range over a host of related subjects, from innovative approaches to teaching Civil Rights history to an examination of the film "Django Unchained."

A full schedule of conference events can be viewed online at http://alcollegeenglish.org/2013Conference/2013ConferenceProgram.pdf

ACETA’s purpose is to improve the quality of instruction in English at the collegiate level; to encourage research, experimentation, and investigation in the teaching of English; to facilitate professional cooperation of the members; to hold public discussions and programs; to sponsor the publication of desirable articles and reports; and to integrate the efforts of all those concerned with the improvement of instruction in English.
