Subject Fields: 
African History / Studies, Asian History / Studies, Latin American and Caribbean History / Studies, Race Studies, Sport History & Studies

We invite submissions for Volume 6 of the peer-reviewed academic journal Recreation and Society in Africa, Asia and Latin America (RASAALA). Volume 6 is tentatively titled “Race and Inequality in Recreation”. We are particularly interested in articles that explore the ties between race, inequality, and access to leisure through sociological, historical, psychological, economic, political, legal, medical, literary, philosophical, and/or interdisciplinary lenses. RASAALA welcomes submissions from a variety of regions within our scope and promotes transnational studies.


RASAALA encourages original research into the relationship between recreation (sports, games, tourism, pageants, and carnivals, etc.) and communities (local, national, and international) in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The journal publishes articles on all relevant domains within which modern, ancient, and traditional recreation and leisure impacted, continue to impact, and was/is in turn impacted by society and the individual. RASAALA hopes to chart the debate relating to the nature of changes in agencies responsible for development, practice, and organization of recreation and leisure in society.


Please send your submission (a maximum of 25 double-spaced pages) to the Chief Editor of RASAALA, Dr. Dannelle Gutarra Cordero (Princeton University), at dgutarra@princeton.edu by our extended deadline: February 28, 2018. For more information, please visit the journal website:
