In particular, we seek to investigate the methods and effects of state and institutional manipulation of textual materialities to create, control, or shape responses. We welcome abstracts that consider texts from the oral ancient to the digital contemporary.

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.
