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.
Submissions are solicited for the inaugural issue of Hong Kong Studies (https://www.chineseupress.com/index.php?route=product%2Fproduct&product_...). Hong Kong Studies is the first bilingual academic journal to focus on Hong Kong from an interdisciplinary arts and cultural studies perspective. Published by the Chinese University of Hong Kong Press, the journal will launch in 2017. The editors believe that the timely expansion of the field of Hong Kong Studies warrants a journal of its own, in order to provide a focused platform for facilitating exchange between different disciplines and viewpoints in relation to Hong Kong.

Two decades after the groundbreaking 1997 essay collection Novel Gazing: Queer Readings in Fiction, edited by Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, no comparable volume of theoretical engagements with poetry has appeared. This is not because of a lack of significant, queer critical accounts of poetry, then or now. Yet this relatively small body of work in queer poetics has emerged piecemeal, rather than as part of a sustained, collective effort to consolidate a line of inquiry and further a dialogue between queer and poetic theories.
