Chèr(e)s collègues,

Le comité organisateur du colloque étudiant de notre département ouvre la période d'acceptation de propositions jusqu'au 8 février.

C'est une raison de plus de soumettre une proposition au colloque, qui s'intitule cette année "Fabrications of Reality - Fabriques du réel", et qui aura lieu le 24 mars 2017. La professeure Kyoo Lee de John Jay College sera notre invitée d'honneur.

Le colloque du département est une excellente occasion de présenter une première conférence, ou de tester les eaux pour un nouveau travail, ce, sans défrayer de coûts supplémentaires et dans un cadre convivial (que vous connaissez déjà bien).

Cordialement,

Votre comité organisateur

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?

In his essay “Reflections on Exile,” the Arab intellectual Edward Said noted that the difference between earlier exiles and those of our own times is “scale”: “our age—with its modern warfare, imperialism, and the quasi-theological ambitions of totalitarian rulers—is indeed the age of the refugee, the displaced person, and mass migration.” Exile and migration—the experiences of being separated from one’s homeland—have informed intellectual, cultural, artistic and political thought since antiquity all over the world.
