Call for Papers: Race and Yoga Journal 2.1 (2017)

 

Yoga can be a tool to promote social justice. Yet, it can also be used to perpetuate violence and oppression. This themed issue of Race and Yoga invites a critical examination of justice and violence in yoga communities. What is yoga justice? How is “justice” defined and by whom? How do we rethink narratives that promote justice through yoga? Conversely, what kinds of violence occur in yoga spaces? How are people responding and/or resisting forms of yoga violence?

Refuge, as a condition of displacement, seeking place, and placement, and the experience of moving oneself from a position of real or perceived harm to a position of real or perceived safety, interacts in complex and illuminating ways with perceptions of home and homelessness, belonging, citizenship, state and statelessness, personhood, language, loss, as well as with everyday practices and modes of dwelling, and the emotional and cognitive strategies used to configure the past, the present, and the future. Prompted by real historical transformations and mass displacements on an unprecedented scale, the notion/condition of refuge operated vigorously, if ambivalently, in the late nineteenth and the first half of the twentieth century.
