Call for materials on David Kato
This is a call for materials for a biographical book on the life, work and
legacy of David Kisule Kato the deceased Ugandan human rights defender
for sexual (and other) minorities. The biography is being developed and
written by researchers in the Law, Gender and Sexuality Research Project
of the Faculty of Law at Makerere University  Kampala. We are interested in a range of materials including essays, fiction,
poetry, web blogs, art, crafts, photographs, film, documentaries,
speeches, diaries, letters and other correspondence, music, academic
publications, etc. that reflect any aspect of the life and work of David
Kato. We invite materials from family, friends, lovers, partners,
colleagues, allies, students, other human rights defenders and advocates,
social justice activists, sexual minorities, academics, clerics,
parliamentarians, journalists and anyone else with something (whether
positive or negative) to say about David Kato�s life, work and legacy.
Materials about the different commemoration activities and memorial events
held after David�s death are also welcome.
The materials will be collected alongside interviews and focus group
discussions conducted in rural and urban Uganda among those who knew David
Kato. Although the main language of the biography will be English,
relevant materials written in Luganda, Kiswahili, French, Portugese,
Spanish and any other African tongue will be translated for inclusion. The
deadline for submission is 16th December 2011. All received materials will
be duly acknowledged.
