About this book

Bringing together sociology of the body with powerful examinations of educational theory and social class, Henry examines how children's experiences of school and pedagogy are shaped by their bodies and the ideas of social class and class identity that their bodies carry.

Reviews

"Sue Ellen Henry is mapping new territory that centers the arguments surrounding body/embodiment and foregrounds social class. This book presents substantial literature reviews that will introduce readers to work that has been conducted in these areas. It is very promising, timely, and exciting." Stephanie Jones, Associate Professor of Elementary and Social Studies Education, University of Georgia, USA

"Henry raises new and timely questions about how working class children's bodies are interpreted, disciplined, and controlled through neoliberal educational approaches to education. Henry's research explores how teachers read students' body language, and the connections between how teachers interpret students' bodies and how they interpret students' themselves. Henry's investigation into these questions is a must-read for all those concerned with education and social justice." - Jennifer Trainor, Associate Professor of English, San Francisco State University, USA
