Dear Collegues,

I am pleased to inform you that Verkörperungen-(Post-)Phänomenologische Untersuchungen zwischen erziehungswissenschaftlicher Theorie und leiblichen Praxen in pädagogischen Feldern was published on 06.12.2019 in the Springer VS as volume 9 of the series Phänomenologische Erziehungswissenschaft

Children, adolescents and educators are connected to the body in a special way. The body is in motion, in the gaze and demands of others and in the answers to these demands. It embodies itself in relation to others and others. This permanent intermittent shifting, which responds to the activities, objects, goals and expectations of others, constitutes the pedagogical situation in a fundamental way. With regard to body, corporality and embodiment, the pre-linguistic forms of experience take on a special significance in the pre-linguistic and non-linguistic interaction processes, i.e. bodily expressions such as gestures and facial expressions.

But how can this movement of embodiments become the subject matter of research? This volume tries to explore the conditions of productive use. Praxeological, post-structuralist, hermeneutic, ethnographic and videographic explorations in the (post-)phenomenological field of pedagogy are presented. Therefore, idividual, collective, habitual, communicative and mood-related moments of embodiment are presented from social, general, early, curative and primary school pedagogical perspectives.

Best regards

Malte Brinkmann
