[UPDATE] Critical Thinking and Writing in the Age of Globalization - Deadline Extended to 6/1/2016

updated:

Double Helix: A Journal of Critical Thinking and Writing

Paul.Pasquaretta@quinnipiac.edu
Globalization, understood as the expanding integration of economic, cultural, political, technological and social activities on a worldwide scale, presents challenges, opportunities, and crises, which can involve emerging literacies and changing modes of thought. How might critical thinking and writing pedagogies shape and/or be shaped by this growing complexity?

Double Helix welcomes the submission of work that both explores linkages of critical thinking and writing and considers how that work might contribute to, and perhaps to some extent define, the role of the university in the context of globalization.
