MURCIA PENA, Napoleón  e  JARAMILLO ECHEVERRI, Luis Guillermo. Imaginarios del joven colombiano ante la clase de educación física. Rev.latinoam.cienc.soc.niñez juv [online]. 2005, vol.3, n.2, pp.175-212. ISSN 1692-715X.

This paper collects the findings of a national research project, "Imaginaries of school youths about Physical Education", carried out in Colombia by researchers from seven universities of this Country. In them, the common methodological focus was Ethnographic Complementarity, an emergent design that assumes three moments: preconfiguration, configuration and reconfiguration, proposed by the authors in a book on the subject published in the year 2000. These research results suggest that young people have been constructing their imaginaries from hegemonic discourse strands that are based on technical-instrumental rationalism. Their social imaginaries are incarnated in already instituted cultural practices and in Physical Education syllabi intentionally designed to configure a productive body, docile and disciplined. These imaginaries are not only re-created in school daily life, but are also infused in the ecology of multiple mediations (family, neighborhood, and mass media). Moreover, participating youths seem to be oriented by instituted imaginaries about sports, propounded through diverse devices like course contents, materials and scenarios, assessment, and teachers' pedagogical discourse, among others. It is also concluded that participating youths are creating new expressions of imaginaries that further their desire of experiencing new practices and class encounters; in their action dynamics, they demand a shared freedom, a moderate level of performance requirements, and a consensual assessment; they ask to be made visible in recognition and affirmation.
