An Unkonventionalität hat es Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz (1648 bis 1695) nicht gefehlt. Auch nicht an Schönheit und Geist, an Wissbegier und Leidenschaft. Wohl aber an Demut und Frömmigkeit. Mit dreizehn Jahren wird Juana Inés als intellektuelles Wunderkind an den Königshof gerufen, mit siebzehn von vierzig weisen Männern einer Wissensprüfung unterzogen, die sie bravourös besteht. Kurz darauf nimmt sie den Schleier und zieht sich hinter Klostermauern zurück. Eine Heirat, ein Leben als Gattin und Mutter, ist ihr unvorstellbar. Ihre Liebe gilt María Luisa, der Vizekönigin von Neuspanien, und ihre Kinder sind ihre Bücher, ihre Schreibutensilien, ihr Teleskop, ihr Schachspiel. Sie beharrt darauf, auch als Frau ihren Geist kultivieren, studieren und schreiben zu dürfen und wird als brillante Autorin gefeiert. Doch das ist ihren Glaubensschwestern wie den Kirchenvätern ein Dorn im Auge. Missgunst wird gesät, Intrigen werden gesponnen ... Ein vielschichtiger historischer Roman, dessen Faszination man sich nicht entziehen kann.

To understand and more creatively capture the social world, visual methods have increasingly become used by researchers in the social sciences and education. However, despite the rapid development of visual-based knowledge, and despite the obvious links between human movement and visual forms of understanding, visual research has been scarce in the fields of physical culture and physical education pedagogy. This groundbreaking book is the first to mark a "visual turn" in understanding and researching physical culture and pedagogies, offering innovative, image-based research that reveals key issues in the domains of sport, health, and physical education studies. Integrating visual research into physical culture and pedagogy studies, the book provides the reader with different ways of "seeing", looking at, and critically engaging with physical culture. Since human movement is increasingly created, established, and pedagogized beyond traditional educational sites such as schools, sport clubs, and fitness gyms, the book also explores the notion of visual pedagogy in wider physical culture, helping the reader to understand how visual-based technologies such as television, the internet, and mobile phones are central to people’s engagement with physical culture today. The book demonstrates how the visual creates dynamic pedagogical tools for revealing playful forms of embodiment, and offers the reader a range of visual methods, from researcher-produced photo analysis to participatory-centred visual approaches, that will enhance their own study of physical culture. Pedagogies, Physical Culture and Visual Methods is important reading for all advanced students and researchers with an interest in human movement, physical education, physical culture, sport studies, and research methods in education.
