Knowing and teaching explosiveness in skateboarding: Remembrance and expressions of kinaesthetic experience
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Child and Youth Studies.
2011 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In social sciences and humanities 'the body' is accentuated to the extent that we may even talk about a ‘corporeal turn’. Through ethnographic research on skateboarding I explore the particular corporeal practice of energy transformation and the verbal, visual and bodily expression of what can be labeled explosiveness.

Explicitly, I use the digital audio-visual empirical material to investigate how kinaesthetic knowing is expressed and taught. The paper adds theoretically and empirically to recent arguments of a shift from embodiment to emplacement. By way of conclusion, a more elaborate focus on the sensory experiences is suggested to better understand the intersections of mind, body, place and learning.
