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.
