Module 2: The Body in Culture and Education (10 ECTS-Credits, 4 h)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Students can recognize the historical determination of body and experience, to identify the relevant determinants of changes in representations of the body and bodily practices and to communicate such aspects of the construction in material terms. Furthermore, they acquire reflective knowledge, which enables an evaluation of the current body and bio-policies and to identify the contribution of human sciences (medicine, psychiatry, special education) and their institutions to the process of norm establishment, maintenance and erosion in a historical or present-day context.
