The editors of this special issue are seeking contributions on teaching critical theory in the global present. What is the relevance of teaching theory in the era of globalization, and what is at stake? What are the challenges and unavoidable paradoxes of teaching theory at a time when global classrooms are geared toward both neoliberal information/skills acquisition and conservative knowledge accumulation?

The Journal of South Texas English Studies is accepting submissions for its Summer 2018 issue, themed “Confronting and Combatting Othering in English Studies.” Submission deadline: May 20, 2018.
In his seminal work The Souls of Black Folk, W.E.B. Du Bois wrote that the single most pressing issue facing the United States was the color line. More than 100 years later, the issue of race remains a pressing one for the U.S. and research suggests that the racial divide permeates our culture. Furthermore, numerous studies have found that today’s college students are not sufficiently prepared to interact and communicate effectively in a culturally-diverse and globalized workplace and do not possess many of the 21st century competencies necessary for success and engagement in such diverse environments. But in comparison, we wonder how prepared are faculty, administrators, and staff to cultivate a space where these skills can develop?
Writing Across the Curriculum
At its most basic, Writing Across the Curriculum is founded on the core belief summarized by Chris Anson in The WAC Casebook that “writing belongs in all courses in every discipline” (ix). While guided by this central value, WAC programs must also be inherently flexible, individually designed to best meet the needs of their specific students, faculty, programs, and institutions. This diversity of possible approaches gives us the opportunity to share ideas, techniques, and experiences to explore the flexibility and adaptability of the larger WAC pedagogy.
The Writing Across the Curriculum section welcomes all submissions. Possible topics include but are not limited to:
