South Asian Dance Intersections is a progressive, scholarly, blind peer-reviewed, and open-access journal which seeks to publish a unique blend of original high-quality research in scholarly, choreographic, contemporary, community-building, and technical explorations within South Asian dance and its interdisciplinary intersections. It seeks to publish policy, theory, and practice articles, reflection essays, book and resource reviews, and arts-based works related to all aspects of dance appreciation in South Asian performing arts in both discursive and embodied contexts.

2023 Conference "Sadhana: Art and Philosophy of Curvilinearity"
Sadhana, daily dance practice, is a sacred space for dancers engaged in Odissi dance, an eastern Indian traditional art form. Every Odissi dancer claims her identity within the field of dance through daily practice of foundational steps as well as canonical repertoire. This space is also one of innovation and resistance, as noted by dance-scholar/ film-maker Nandini Sikand. While Odissi dancer Bijayini Satpathy finds this space for intentionality within corporeal exploration and expansion, educator-choreographer Rohini Dandavate finds this generative for socio-political relevance. Mangalacharan (invocation) to Moksha (transformative freedom) animates the life and being of every Odissi dancer. This conference is a modality of engaging with this traditional configuration and proposition while infusing it with social justice initiatives, such as anti-caste, anti-racist, anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist, and anti-classist resistance. This conference will be an online conference held on video-conferencing because we want to be as inclusive as possible. It will have an in person component catering to the local Indian community as well as the regional and national Odissi dancer community.
