One of Action Deafness Books’ authors, Stuart Harrison, who wrote the highly acclaimed book “Same Spirit Different Teams – The Politicisation of Deaflympics”, has recently attended the Deaf History International Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland with the theme “Deaf Sporting Heritage”; as one of its main speakers.

Stuart is pictured left with Jordan Eickman, Professor of Deaf Studies at California State University.

Jordan, who wrote the book entitled ‘CISS 2001’ published in 2002 and Stuart engaged in many interesting conversations as regards the past, current and future state of Deaf Sport.

Both Stuart and Jordan believe that they “look forward to further collaboration to preserve the ‘deaf space’ in sport whilst serving the wider benefits that Deaf Sport brings to the world.”
