Men, Masculinities and Teaching in Early Childhood Education : International perspectives on gender and care Hardback

Edited by Simon (University of Cambridge, UK) Brownhill, Jo (Lancaster University, UK) Warin, Inga (University West, Sweden.) Wernersson

Description

This stimulating book sets out to critically explore the notion of men, masculinities and teaching in early childhood education.

It addresses the global pattern of gender, teaching and care where men are in the minority, and explores the notion that the greater involvement of men within teaching and associated professions has the potential to transform gender relations for future generations.

International contributors raise critical questions about the construction of masculinities, the continuing reluctance of men to engage in this type of work, and the influence of political and public debates on the issue.

Through this engaging discussion readers are asked to question whether this is something that we should care about, with key topics including:The roles of men in education and care Teachers' beliefs, norms and values of gender equalityThe construction of male identitiesGendered ideals, and children's interpretations of gender. Men, Masculinities and Teaching in Early Childhood Education brings together a refreshing and critical set of perspectives linked to an increasingly important educational debate and will be a valuable text for practitioners, professionals, policy makers and parents/carers.
