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 (BCRI.) 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, 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."

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.
