QUITZAU, Evelise Amgarten  y  MORENO, Andrea. Presentation - History of the education of the body: research for a developing notion. Educ. Rev. [online]. 2021, vol.37, e80259.  Epub 08-Ago-2021. ISSN 1984-0411.

Since the 1980s, the body is being consolidated as an object of study in humanities, including history, especially among those adept at cultural history. The debates generated by the so-called “corporeal turn” echoed powerfully in areas like the history of education and the history of physical education, sports, and amusements. This scholarship has focused on issues like the different practices and prescriptions developed in modern Western societies to educate the body. The notion of education of the body has been used by numerous scholarship programs, allowing new interrogations over various research objects, such as handbooks on gymnastics and sports, handbooks on painting, curricula of teacher training programs, or even outdoor games and amusements. This introductory text briefly discusses this incorporation of the body as an object of study in the history of education, sports, and amusements, indicating its consolidation process and potentials for these areas.
