Polyseme: The Language, Literacy, and Culture Review is an Open Access electronic journal dedicated to examining the concepts and processes of language, literacy, and culture in relationship to social, historical, technological, and ideological formations.  We are interested in innovative, experimental approaches to scholarship and encourage interdisciplinary methods that enhance traditional disciplinary divisions and promote critical debate and creative expression.  It is currently published twice a year (Fall/Spring).

From 2002-2009, the journal was published as a print journal.  After a brief hiatus, a group of LLC doctoral student and faculty volunteers decided to revamp the project by going digital.

Submissions are welcome in the form of long and short articles, reviews and reports, and multimodal experiments.  All featured articles are subject to a double blind peer review process.
