    Provocation #1 of Pieter Verstraete's post is supplemented, or do I mean accentuated? or do I mean compounded? by the visual image of the body moving at the gym. I am reminded that in most of my life, bodies are covered and muted and veiled EXCEPT at the gym, where it's all about bodies, all the time, almost flagrantly. It's a Body House and we see, smell, and feel bodies everywhere. I love seeing this image while listening to the more reflective, intellectual discussion about bodies. In academia, we have come to talk so much about bodies (I just co-coordinated an entire conference about education and the body!) in which we talked and talked and thought and thought. And here we see this guy working his muscles, moving his body so clearly and powerfully.

    A wonderful way of provoking the reflection on how historians (of education) have dealt with bodies in their work. We need more of such experiments! Congrats.
