We invite submissions for Volume 7 of the peer-reviewed academic journal Recreation and Society in Africa, Asia and Latin America (RASAALA)Volume 7 is tentatively titled “Recreating Recreation.” We are particularly interested in articles that explore the representation of recreation in literature, historiography, media, institutional reports, policies, jurisprudence, interviews, medical protocols, and philosophical treatises, among other mediums. This inquiry could be approached 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.
