Internationalisation de l'hygiène à l'école

[en] This article develops a histoire croisée of health education using the example of open-air schools. It reflexively analyses the entangled performances of knowledge and praxis around hygiene in the context of “international” open-air school conferences and in relation to “materials” of open-air education. Such performances reveal open-air schools as “practice and movement” unbound by “national” or otherwise imagined borders. Fragmentation accompanied their circulation and ensued from non/humans’ active, co-constitutive role in the mediation of knowledge and praxis. While underexplored, material and economic factors were key to this process. Their analysis enriches the study of the “internationalization” of school hygiene.
