Pegagogy and Masculinity

• When is a boy a boy?

In this book, being a boy and being a man are considered as identities expressed through open or hidden references in learning and teaching
processes in different pedagogical contexts. When maleness and masculinity are recognized as coping patterns or patterns of appropriation, it
is possible to uncover them in pedagogy, not just through reconstruction. The book considers maleness and masculinity in the following pedagogical institutions: the family, school, youth work and adult education. The following roles are considered in their relation to masculinity and
being a boy: the father, the youth counselor, the teacher and the social worker. The book concludes with a presentation of methodological
and practical suggestions.

Target Group:
Educators, lecturers and others working in the fields of social work and social pedagogy
