Kurzbeschreibung

This paper offers a rough sketch of the so called corporeal turn and the
special needs education in Germany. It is written from the point of view of the Disability
Studies and it gives an overview, shows first outcomes and also presents first results. Since
this is still a work in progress, I decided to present my approach as a survey of the thesis’
main features and problems and furthermore as an outlook on further procedure. “Corporeal
turn and special needs education” - how do they match? For approximately the last 20 years
discussions of the body are widespread and prospering. It is a real hot topic in every day life
as well as in the sciences and the humanities. Last but not least through the impact of the
Gender Studies, the body became a popular topic, literary studies, arts, the humanities in
general, etc. deal with it and declare a so-called corporeal or somatic turn (Gugutzer 2006, 10)
or, referring to the term commonly used in Germany: body turn, which is still quite popular at
the moment. Thus I wondered how this idea is adopted within the German special education
discourse.
