Since 1938, the College English Association has served academics who seek to keep teaching college students as the focus of the profession. Its official publication, the CEA Critic, recently published a double issue commemorating its 80th anniversary with content from the history of the journal.
The issue includes essays from Willa Cather, H.L. Mencken, Pearl Buck, Wallace Stevens, Phillip K. Dick, Margaret Atwood, John Updike and many others. Editor Jeri Craver joined us for a lively discussion about the social issue and the journal's place in the field.
