The theme of the sixth seminar on Africa is embodyments of disabled persons. One of the presenters, Dr. Yutaka Yoshida, has conducted fieldwork at an elementary boarding school for hearing impaired children. She has been very close to the dacing of children with hearing impaired children. Mr. Mohamed Omer Abdin is a blind soccer player with visual disability and also promotes blind soccer in Sudan. Children's dance and blind soccer are activities that people with visual/hearing disabilities play with people with different bodies. Through these two person we would like to consider cooperativity people with disabilities create through their bodies.
