Young bodies in the spotlight during the pandemic: what can a body do?


This article discusses the experiences of a teaching and extension project, focusing on reflections of the body in the school environment. It presents the report of workshops held between the end of 2019 and the first year of the pandemic, in 2020, with a high school class from a College of Application, linked to a public university. The guiding thread started from the question “What can a body do?”, with the aim of how these students were constituting the processes of “being a body” and how they dealt with it in school life. . The work was guided by the narratives of these students, provoking other ways of thinking and feeling the body and collectively producing possibilities to expand the ways of seeing and feeling the body-subjects.
