The Center for Sports Administration, the Institute for African Child and the School of Health Sciences at Ohio University present the fourth annual Sports and Africa symposium, entitled Health, Science and Sport in African Workshop. The symposium will examine the interface between health and sports in Africa and the development of pedagogy for youth sports for health education and implication of sciences in African sports.
The conference invites paper proposals that broadly address sports, health and science in Africa. Possible paper topics may include; sports as a form of public health sensibilization, sports as a tool of health betterment, and the diminishing emphasis on physical fitness programs in African schools.
Other potential proposals may include athletes' and coaches' training, youth development, biomedics, doping, "the stereotypical African athlete," "scientific racism," gendered science, facilities and infrastructure, North-South cooperation (and conflict).
