Double Helix: A Journal of Critical Thinking and Writing invites submissions for Volume 5. The deadline for this volume is 3/31/17, but this is also an open call for subsequent volumes as well.
Double Helix publishes work addressing linkages between critical thinking and writing, in and across the disciplines, and it is especially interested in pieces that explore and report on connections between pedagogical theory and classroom practice. The journal also invites proposals from potential guest editors for specially themed volumes that fall within its focus and scope.
The Indian River Review is currently soliciting submissions for its fifth issue scheduled for publication in late spring 2018. The theme for this issue is home: home as place, as idea, as state of being. In a society that seems increasingly unrooted and atomized, does home still have its gravitational force and tug? Against the warp and disruption of the current tumult, does it persist? Has it devolved to a walled-off and gated insularity? Can we take it with us when we go? Does it belong to us or we to it?

The original call is below. Please also note that we have a sufficient amount of literature analyzing dystopian texts, so please avoid that genre. Additionally, each chapter should have a Practical Considerations for the Classroom section in which contributors might discuss specific assignment descriptions and/or other practical applications.
