Content

In this seminar, we will discuss the relationship between philosophy and empiricism in the subject of physical education. We will also investigate ways of renewing the subject of PE in schools using epistemological and research-based methods that are both relevant and culturally sensitive.

Another focus of the seminar will be the relationship between school politics and the ways in which physical education promotes bodily learning.

Our goal is to show that these various topics, which are usually discussed separately, are actually interrelated, and that analysis of one may reveal new perspectives on another. We hope that a broad context of investigation will make room for innovative ideas and fresh connections.
