February 4-5, 2005 , Ohio University in conjunction with the Institute for African Child and the Sports Administration Program will hold a workshop, African Sports Across Disciplines, to provide a forum to examine the social, political, and economic impact of sports on African societies and future developments.
The presentations and debates will address themes such as politics, economics, administration, management, gender, conflict resolution, health and wellness, communication, marketing, and promotion. The workshop will be held in an interactive environment.
We invite scholars, athletes, administrators, coaches, media, businesses, project managers and interested parties to attend and contribute to the success of the workshop.
In order to promote the dissemination of information relating to sports and Africa , the organizers of the workshop sincerely hope to publish any significant outcomes from the workshop in Impumelelo: The Interdisciplinary Electronic Journal of African Sports. Participants are encouraged to contribute by giving a short presentation or a poster display on their research or project. These short presentations will be video taped and also published by the Journal. We invite contributors to send us a short paragraph of their presentation.
