In this article, the authors articulate a theory of a critical body pedagogy that can contribute to a larger justice-oriented project. The authors drew on class readings, writings, activities, class discussions, and reflective notes to explore what this critical pedagogy of the body afforded for their preservice education students—and them. The authors argue that the prevalence of body-related discourses in the students’ work, points to the necessity of a critical body pedagogy within justice-oriented teacher education. Therefore, they conclude that some teacher education programs, future and present teachers are taught to be reflexive in their understandings of race, social class, gender, religion, language, ethnicity, and sometimes sexuality as a way for them to become critically conscious of the power and discourses circulating such positionalities.

This paper draws on data from a three-year study of pedagogy in teacher education. The study attempts to disrupt normative structures of reading and being in the teacher education classroom. The author uses Bourdieu’s work to emphasize the ways in which academic fields become ruled by unspoken rules and practices – “nomos”. The author also demonstrates a use of trauma narratives in teacher education that can disrupt such unspoken rules and practices.
