This Body Mapping activity is a great ice-breaker to get to know your students. I tie in Habitus and emphasize a process in which students can make connections to their daily lives. It’s a really creative time to have students open up and share parts of their identity. You can also dive into Kimberle Crenshaw and intersectionality as well. When the body mapping workshop is over, students are encouraged to put them up on a wall and discuss with their classmates important parts of their identity if they wish. NOTE: This activity is paired with a PowerPoint presentation also available on this platform, search for: “Music: Its Language, History, and Culture | Body Mapping Presentation | Brooklyn College | Spring 2023.”
