Project Summary

The Embodied Emotions project raises significant new questions arising from the practice which we seek to address as the focus of the proposed follow-up work:

Where is the space in the curriculum, in the built school environment and in the everyday timetable for children to engage in safe debate on dangerous topics? How do we lobby for this space - a Centre - to appear in every school?

What is the potential for child-led, experiential learning to complement PSE teaching and to be layered into its practice?

How do we honour children's ownership of work co-created with them in its broader dissemination and publication?


Arts & Humanities Research Council: Each year the AHRC provides approximately £100 million from the Government to support research and postgraduate study in the arts and humanities, from archaeology and English literature to design and dance. In any one year, the AHRC makes approximately 700 research awards and around 1,000 postgraduate awards. Awards are made after a rigorous peer review process, to ensure that only applications of the highest quality are funded. Arts and humanities researchers constitute nearly a quarter of all research-active staff in the higher education sector. The quality and range of research supported by this investment of public funds not only provides social and cultural benefits but also contributes to the economic success of the UK.
