With school in the body, school bodies: the construction of inter / national identities in post-disciplinary society

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

From the 1880s until the present schooling practices have institutionalised That focus on the social regulation and normalization of the body. To Illustrate and elaborate this argument, I will seek to show how the regulation of the body in space and in time worked in schools in the mid to late 19th century in Australia and Britain. I will next show how school physical training, sport and medical inspection were developed as a cluster of specialised highly corporeal practices during the first half of the 20th century. I will then
even though there suggest that have been attempts during the 20th century to challenge schooling as an institution, the basic structure of the school as a site of corporeal regulation remained and normalization has more or less intact to the present. Finally, I will speculate
about the ways in contemporary processes which may construct of schooling embodied inter / national identities in the first decade of the 21st century.
