Making sport and physical activity more empowering for marginalized populations is the subject of a free public lecture Friday, Sept. 27, on the UWindsor campus.
David Howe, the Dr. Frank J. Hayden Endowed Chair in Sport and Social Impact in the School of Kinesiology at Western University, will present “An Accidental Academic: Athlete, Advocate, and Anthropologist” at noon in room 144, Human Kinetics Building.
Dr. Howe’s ethnographic research focuses on unpacking the embodied socio-cultural milieu surrounding inclusive physical activity and disability sport. His publications on the co-constitution of disability and medicine in sport mark him out as the leader in the socio-cultural investigation of disability sport.
Friday’s lecture is presented by the Faculty of Human Kinetics as part of its Distinguished Speakers Series.
