Hopsicker, Peter M.; Hochstetler, Douglas – Quest, 2016
Massengale's "Trends Toward the Future of Physical Education" (1987) makes no reference to the existence of the philosophic inquiry of physical activity within higher education kinesiology programs--even though the sub-discipline had been formalized by academics in the early 1970s. In contrast, Massengale and Swanson's "The History…

Charles, John M. – Quest, 2016
Looking ahead, it seems clear that organizing together the values we espouse as a profession could help us to live and work in a global kinesiology community in the best possible way.

Estes, Steven G.; Germain, Jesse – Quest, 2016
Academic disciplines are vulnerable in the 21st century to the forces Barnett called supercomplexity, and we argue that academic societies such as the National Association for Kinesiology in Higher Education are especially well positioned to prepare 21st century scholars to respond to contemporary changes in the disciplines and in institutions of…

The loss of significant faculty members comes at a time when public and community expectations for institutions of higher learning have expanded.

Charles, John M.; Charles, P. Kelly – Quest, 2016

Eales, Lindsay; Peers, Danielle – Quest, 2016
Where is the moving body in our written bodies of work? How might we articulate truly unspeakable and deeply moving moments of understanding? In what ways can we reflect and honor the knowledge of those who do not use academic words, English words, or any words at all? How might art move us to answer these questions differently--and more…

Hochstetler, Douglas – Quest, 2012
In this article I examine the theme of wilderness through the lens of American philosopher Henry Bugbee. His conception of wilderness goes beyond the literal sense of the word to what Mooney (1999) terms "a generous space of listening, mutuality of address and presence" (p. ix). I contend that Bugbee's metaphorical expression of wilderness has…
