The Making of Men: Masculinities, Sexualities and Schooling

Front Cover
McGraw-Hill Education (UK), Apr 1, 1994 - Education - 224 pages
This book explores how boys learn to be men in schools while policing their own and others' sexuality. He focuses on the students' confusions and contradictions in their gendered experiences and upon how schools produce, through the official and hidden curriculum, a range of masculinities which young men come to inhabit. He does full justice to the complex phenomenon of male heterosexual subjectivites and to the role of schooling in forming sexual identites.
