Call for Papers and Panels
2017 Central States Communication Association (CSCA)
Annual Convention in Minneapolis, Minnesota
March 16-18, 2017

The Kenneth Burke Society Interest Group invites the submission of
competitive papers, panels, roundtable discussions, and innovative
programming for the 2017 CSCA convention in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Submissions should draw upon the work of Kenneth Burke as a means of
pursuing humanistic and social scientific inquiry. We especially encourage
members to address issues related to the convention theme of Create.  In
terms of panels, preference will be given to those with panelists
representing multiple institutions rather than representing a single
institution. A top paper award will be given to the top student and faculty

*Papers:*  Only completed papers will be accepted.  Papers must include a
title and a brief abstract. Graduate students should type “STUDENT” on the
upper right-hand corner of the title page.  If the paper will be a graduate
student debut, please type “DEBUT STUDENT” on the upper right- hand corner
of the title page. To be considered a student debut paper, (1) the author
must be a graduate or undergraduate student, (2) the paper must have single
authorship, and (3) the paper must be the author’s first paper to be
presented at CSCA. Indicate if author(s) are CSCA members. Author names and
any identifying information must be removed prior to submission.  A
Competitive Paper Submission Form must be submitted along with the paper.
This form is located on the CSCA website:  www.csca-net.org.

*Panels:*  To propose a discussion or paper panel, please include a 300-500
word description and rationale for the entire panel. In addition to the
