Call for Papers: Race and Yoga Journal 5.1 (2020)

The Race and Yoga editorial board is currently seeking articles, personal narratives, and creative works for the fifth issue of the journal featuring a thematic cluster on “South Asian Voices on Yoga.”

Yoga, a practice that originated in the Indian subcontinent, now claims millions of practitioners worldwide. If for much of its history yoga enjoyed a modest following in the West, in recent years, Westerners have flocked to the practice. Despite its South Asian origins, South Asian voices are often invisibilized or obscured in mainstream yoga practice and discourse. We invite theoretical, empirical, personal, or creative work that interrogates the spread of yoga from its roots in South Asia to its recent global boom.

Possible topics may include:

Cultural Appropriation

Mantras,Mudras, and Mispronunciations

Bhakti Yoga and AmericanKirtan Culture

Religious Imagery and Iconography

Spiritual Bypassing

Tokenization

Yoga and the Politics of Hindu Fundamentalism

Yoga and Western Capitalism

Whitewashing/Erasure

Globalization

Migration and Second/Third Generation South Asian Perspectives

Representation of India in Yoga Spaces
