Jacques Derrida, 'Living On: Borderlines'

'Whether my life had been before that sleep
The Heaven which I imagine, or a Hell
Like this harsh world in which I wake to weep,
I know not'

Abstract Deadline: 15th April 2016

All texts and artworks will have at one stage been a work in progress, despite the tendency to value them as cultural artefacts once they are deemed finished and made available for consumption. Redrafting and editing are processes which strive towards a "final" product, meaning their publication often results in the loss or occlusion of multiple ancillary versions. Such materials are important to our understanding of how texts and works are shaped and reshaped, and by whom.

What role does print culture play in shaping collectives or communities? How can we (re)conceive solidarity or community through the literary? This panel can engage with but is not limited to the following topics: literary criticism, critical theory (including theories of affect), aesthetics, propaganda, literary texts, and print culture more broadly.

Double Helix: A Journal of Critical Thinking and Writing

Paul.Pasquaretta@quinnipiac.edu
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.
