Masculinity and Aspiration in an Era of Neoliberal Education : International Perspectives Hardback
Edited by Garth Stahl, Joseph Nelson, Derron Wallace
Part of the Routledge Critical Studies in Gender and Sexuality in Education series
This collection investigates the ways in which boys and young men negotiate neoliberal discourse surrounding aspiration and how neoliberalism shapes their identities.
Expanding the field of masculinity studies in education, the contributors offer international comparisons of different subgroups of boys and young men in primary, secondary and university settings.
A cross-sectional analysis of race, gender, and class theory is employed to illuminate the role of aspiration in shaping boys' identities, which adds nuance to their complex "identity work" in neoliberal times.
