Sports and the Global South
UTS Business School's Centre for Business and Social Innovation warmly welcomes staff, students and the public to a seminar by Dr Janaka Biyanwila, who will be discussing his recently published book, Sports and the Global South: Work, Play and Resistance in Sri Lanka (Palgrave).
Dr Biyanwila’s book analyses and provides a critical perspective of the spreading sports market in the Global South, foregrounding issues of justice and care. It explores how struggles for recognition, redistribution and representation are central to reimagining sports within an alternative notion of work, play and resistance.
Dr Janka Biyanwila is a former Olympic athlete and Sri Lankan national diving champion, with a PhD in Organisational and Labour Studies from the University of Western Australia.
Join us at UTS Business School on October 12th to join the discussion.
