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.

CFP for Edited Volume: New Readings of the Medieval Robin Hood Tales

The 2013 publication of Thomas Ohlgren and Lister Matheson's Early Rymes of Robyn Hood: An Edition of the Texts, ca. 1425-1600 provides new opportunities for scholars to reread and reconsider the earliest Robin Hood rhymes and plays. Scholars now have access to the extant manuscripts of the late medieval ballads as well as two early plays. Now that these early texts are readily available—some for the first time—it is time for scholars of a wide range of interests and backgrounds to return to the medieval rhymes with the aid of this significant new resource that allows for truly in-depth analysis of the source materials.
