Studies in Body Education
Academic Unit: University Institute of Physical Education and Sports
The problems we are dealing with are related to the pedagogies of the art of living of and from the bodies, inside and outside of school. We renew certain educational languages to make human life present from the sensitive, emotions, body memory, body movement, difference, playfulness, and poetics. We are interested in knowing about the embodied and political experiences of the sensitive; exploring (hetero)didactics that relate knowledge and life, and (trans)formative Corporal Practices in a perspective of ethical and aesthetic formation of existence.
