9th March, talk: Caster Semenya – running a fine line

Our next talk will be : “Caster Semenya – running a fine line”.

Join us in SB317 on Tuesday, 9th March, at 1pm.

Synopsis

Recent media reports have speculated whether the South African runner will
be allowed to continue competing without medical treatment, or possibly
following treatment. This talk will question why healthy individuals like
Caster are medicalised to fit in with society’s sex/gender requirements.
