"Peace, Love, Yoga: The Politics of Global Spirituality" The 2019 Mary Olive Woods Lecture
Time: 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Location: Union Grand Ballroom
Description: Is yoga a religion? Is yoga a practice that is spiritual but not religious? Although yoga is often defined as an individualized practice, Dr. Andrea Jain will describe the way that yoga has become part of a global industry that is affected by the same exploitative market forces and power struggles that shape the world's more well-known religious traditions.

This year's Mary Olive Woods lecturer, Andrea Jain, is Editor of the Journal of the American Academy of Religion, and Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI)
