Disability and citizenship In South Africa
A public debate and seminar series
Presented by the University of Stellenbosch and the UN Special Rapporteur on Disability.
The fifth in this series of public seminars is entitled:
‘Paralympic Sport and Social Justice: Toward a Happy Marriage or Difficult Separation?’
Speaker: Dr David Howe
Dr David Howe works at the Peter Harrison Centre for Disability Sport at Loughborough University, United Kingdom. His research interests comprise two related strands, both of which are theoretically informed by social theories of embodiment, notably those developed by Bourdieu, Foucault and Merleau-Ponty. The first of these strands concerns the impaired sporting body, health and identity. This area of work is being developed through a life long involvement in, and commitment to, the Paralympic sporting movement. His experience as athlete and administrator and latterly journalist and coach, has facilitated access to this
rapidly changing sporting environment. His first major publication in this area came out in 2008 entitled The Cultural Politics of the Paralympic Movement: Through the Anthropological Lens. London: Routledge.
Discussant: Dr Shuaib Manjra
Dr Shuaib Manjra is a medical doctor and sports and occupational health specialist. His professional affiliations include Chair: medical commission South African sports confederation and Olympic committee (sascoc) as well as Chair of the South African Institute of Drug free sport. He was chief medical officer for the South African Paralympics team at the Athens Paralympics games , the Beijing Olympic games and the Delhi commonwealth games.
Venue: River Club, Observatory.
