Where: La Trobe University, Melbourne City Campus

La Trobe University City Campus
Level 20, 360 Collins Street
Melbourne, VIC 3000

When: 8am , Jun 12, 2019


Notions of the body and embodiment have become prominent across a number of established discipline areas, like philosophy, sociology, psychology, and so on. Likewise, emerging areas in related fields, such as embodied cognition, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, bio-power/bio-politics, and so on, approach the body and embodiment in novel ways, and offer the possibility for innovative contributions to education in general and to educational research in particular. The aim of this symposium is to explore conceptualisations of the body and embodiment in related fields with respect to contemporary approaches and insights. The symposium aims not only to address the paradigmatic shift toward questions of the body and embodiment in education and educational research from a theoretical and philosophical perspective, it also aims to intersect with the diverse interests of education researchers and practitioners.

This event will bring together a range of highly distinguished academics to present their research on the symposium theme. Convened by Dr Steven Stolz (La Trobe University) and Dr Maurice Toscano (Melbourne Graduate School of education), and Co-sponsored by the School of Education at La Trobe University and the Australian Association for Research in Education (AARE), the symposium will be held at the City Campus of La Trobe University.
