dc.description.abstractThe aim of the study was fundamentally two-fold; (1) to examine the social stigma associated with disability in a sporting context, and (2) to understand the dynamic complexities and stereotypical based assumptions within social structures. These were explored through the means of autoethnography; more specifically through my relationship with Michael, a friend who suffers from Multiple Sclerosis. The resultant stories are, in turn, theorised through the work of Erving Goffman (1963), and in particular his – "Notes on the Management of Spoiled Identity". The narrative of self has enabled the author to suggest how writing reflexively will enable future researchers to share their experiences with stigma in a powerful yet conceptualised manner. Adopting such an approach will demonstrate a critical understanding, yet provide a more insightful outlook as to how stigma is viewed in society.en_US
