· Child’s, Mother’s (and Father’s) bodies during the first years of the new-born life: health, nutritional needs, breast feeding, first contacts, social re-insertion/integration, etc.
· Initial stages of body awareness: incorporation of techniques, assimilation of sensorial sensibilities, play, physical education, etc.
· Representations of parents’ and children’s bodies: their images and application in arts, political, philosophical or religious discourses; parents’ or children’s self-representation, etc.«
