Welcome to the Xchanges journal!


Xchanges is an interdisciplinary Technical Communication, Writing/Rhetoric, and Writing Across the Curriculum journal, which publishes two issues annually from its home in the Rhetoric and Writing program at University of New Mexico. Our Fall issue each year features undergraduate research. Our Spring issue feature graduate-student research.  In each undergraduate issue, we publish theses and research projects of upper-level undergraduate students. Our graduate-student issues feature MA- and Ph.D.-level original research from emerging professionals in our focal fields.  We receive submissions from students from a wide array of institutions across the country.  Our faculty review board, comprised of TC, Comp/Rhet, and WAC faculty from throughout the U.S., reviews these submissions on a “blind” basis.   We welcome undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines to submit their work to Xchanges, either as traditional articles or as multi-modal “webtexts.”  Please see our "Submissions" tab for more information.

We hope you enjoy our current issue of Xchanges, Issues 10.2/11.1!  This issue features one article by an undergraduate student and three by graduate students; we know you will find the research in these scholarly projects engaging.  Use the navigation menu at left to peruse our current and past issues and the navigation menu at top to return “home” and to learn more about the journal in general.  We welcome your feedback and we are looking forward to producing many more excellent issues of Xchanges from its new home -- the University of New Mexico -- in the future.  Please enjoy the rigorous undergraduate and graduate-student research in the TC, Comp/Rhet, and WAC fields that we have published here in Xchanges and stay tuned for more innovative scholarship in future issues.  Be sure to "like" Xchanges on Facebook!
