Dueling Disciplines: Yoga

Thank you for joining us at Dueling Disciplines: Yoga on May 28, 2015. Special thanks to our speakers Farah Godrej, Amanda Lucia and Jacqueline Shea Murphy and to Jennifer Hughes for moderating this event. We hope you enjoyed this engaging discussion on the different academic perspectives on yoga!

The Dueling Disciplines series offers alternating disciplinary perspectives on a popular subject or theme. Faculty members and graduate students from ‘opposing’ theoretical viewpoints present ways to think about topics such as God, university education, or urbanism. The resulting ‘Duel’ is lighthearted and fun (for example, opposing ‘teams’ in the audience are invited to wave flags and cheer) without sacrificing academic rigor or respect.
