Schools have a long history of intervention in the health of children and adolescents. Their implication in the administration and management of public health has impacted significantly on relationships between family, school and the state, and on ideas about the role of the school in the creation of healthy, productive citizens. Understandings of health and hygiene have had ongoing and changing moral and political dimensions, and concerns about health have varied across gender, sexuality, race, social class, age and place. Further, shifting meanings of health and illness in schools have continued to reflect and produce contested views of difference.
A wide variety of topics related to this history will be considered, including but not limited to:
gender and gendered understandings of the body and education
sex, sexuality and bodily discipline
citizenship and governing
colonialisation, race, assimilation and eugenics
hygiene, vaccination and civic morality
nutrition, food provision, obesity and healthy eating
(early) childhood and adolescence
parents’ role in public health programs
communicable diseases and ideas about illness and wellness
class, social control and the economics of public health
changing and contested conceptions of expertise and professional knowledge around medicine, psychology, school teaching and parenting
