The Pennsylvania College English Association (PCEA) provides a forum for the debate and discussion of ideas surrounding literature and literacy studies. It strives, moreover, to promote and foster inquiry into our world as it is presented in literature of all genres. Equally important with promoting literary inquiry, the PCEA actively strives to give voice to those who endeavor to create new kinds of literacies. The PCEA organization has been serving English professionals since before 1970.
PCEA hosts an academic conference each year, visiting different Pennsylvania colleges and universities to share engaging presentations and thought-provoking conversations with scholars from a wide array of regional and national institutions. The Association also publishes an annual journal, Pennsylvania English, to showcase the creative and scholarly works of our members.
