Forms of Formation: A Pedagogical-Philosophical Inquiry into Embodied Tensions around Gender and Social Equality in the Classroom

Financed by: Swedish Research Council Grant, 5.4 million SEK (€550k) 2020-2024 Tensions around gender and social equality are commonplace both in societal debates and the classroom and often include reference to the body (e.g. headscarves, skin colour, gestures, touch and comportment). To date, pedagogical research has been mainly focused on dialogic approaches to these tensions and little attention has been paid to their bodily and sensory aspects. The present study combines feminist theory with sensory studies in examining embodied expressions and the social and cultural coding of sensual experiences in the classroom. Project members: • Profesor Sharon Todd, Maynooth University • Senior Lecturer Elisabet Langmann, Södertörn University, Sweden • Senior Lecturer Lovisa Bergdahl, Södertörn University, Sweden
