College English is an official publication of the American National Council of Teachers of English and is aimed at college-level teachers and scholars of English. The peer-reviewed journal publishes articles on a range of topics related to the teaching of English language arts at the college level, including literature, rhetoric, critical theory, and pedagogy.[1] It sometimes publishes special issues devoted to specific themes. Its content is accessible electronically via ERIC, ProQuest, and JSTOR, and is indexed by the MLA.

History[edit]

College English began in 1939 when it was spun off from The English Journal.[2] Its first editor was W. Wilbur Hatfield, who also edited The English Journal. He continued to edit both publications until 1955.[3]
