Critical Thinking and Writing in the Age of Globalization 3/31/16

updated: 
Monday, April 13, 2015 - 1:02pm
full name / name of organization: 
Double Helix: A Journal of Critical Thinking and Writing

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.

The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2016.

Intermedia Games—Games Inter Media (Video Games & Intermediality; abstract deadline June 30, 2015)

full name / name of organization: 
Michael Fuchs & Jeff Thoss

In their book on 'understanding new media,' Jay David Bolter and Richard Grusin convincingly argue that "all mediation is remediation," since "[o]ur culture conceives of each medium" on the basis of how "it responds to, redeploys, competes with, and reforms other media." Accordingly, the computer has been referred to as "the first metamedium," for, as Alan Kay noted as early as 1984, it "can dynamically simulate the details of any other medium, including media that cannot exist physically." If we thus, following Lev Manovich, conceive of digital media as simulations of "previously existing" and "previously non-existent media," we should not be surprised by the fact that video games are enmeshed in a network of media that influence one another.
