  • The Affront of the Aspiration Agenda: White Working-Class Male Narratives
           of ‘Ordinariness’ in Neoliberal Times

    • Authors: Garth Stahl
      Abstract: This article draws on accounts of white working-class boys (age 14-16) from South London in order to explore how they reconstitute their learner-identities within the ‘raising aspirations’ rhetoric. The current dominant neoliberal discourse in education, which prioritises a view of aspiration that is competitive, qualification-focused, and economic, shapes the subjectivities of these young males though there exist nuanced strategies of resistance. In an era of high modernity where youth feel increasing risk, the identities of young people are subject to tremendous change where traditional class and gendered boundaries are being subverted, reimagined, and reconstituted. Focusing on academic engagement as an identity negotiation, this research critically considers where young men enact strategies to construct themselves as ‘having value’ in spaces of devaluing where they reconcile competing and contrasting conceptions of aspiration.

  • We Teach Too: What are the Lived Experiences and Pedagogical Practices of
           Gay Men of Color Teachers

    • Authors: Cleveland Hayes
      Abstract: Over the past decade, increased attention to the marginalization of queers of color across educational context in North America has forced urgent reevaluations of the legal, political, and pedagogical implications of exclusionary politics (Brockenbrough, 2012, 2013; McCready, 2013). The research done by Brockenbrough (2013) cites the absences of queer of color perspectives in the educational literature and more specifically for this research their perspectives on teaching and learning.  An experience that requires the participants to cross-epistemological boundaries and examine their experiences within the intersections of race and gender and in some instances class; which will become evident in the narratives of Malcolm, Carlos and Victor. Following the work of Brockenbrough (2013), McCready (2013) and others this article centers the pedagogical practices of three gay men of color. It is my intent with this line of research to bring to the forefront the lived and pedagogical experiences of gay teachers of color.

  • When man Falls Provider. Masculinity, Unemployment and Psychological
           Distress in the Family. A Methodology for the Search of Affective
           normalization

    • Authors: Juan Antonio Rodriguez del Pino
      Abstract: An item that has equipped the masculinity of its traditional hegemonic character has been there presentation of man as immediate major supplier of their environment, than it has historically legitimized in their role as pater familias with all that that en tailed. But this may change in men, with the economic crisis, have lost their jobs and, therefore, the system of domination believed immutable, shows some cracks. This has involved in some countries certain relocation with respect to a changing environment and fail to control sharpening the sense of "loss". Through a methodology used in new ways, men are seen in perspective. Based on their ability to connect with the subjectivity that had been severed, are rewritten from a new model of relationship to themselves and their environments.

  • Typologies of Men’s Friendships: Constructing Masculinity through
           Them

    • Authors: Todd Migliaccio
      Abstract: Male friendships are often identified as being instrumental, avoiding expressive intimacy within their friendships. Past research has focused too much on friendship being an outcome of being male or having masculine attitudes, limiting analysis of the social construction of friendships in relation to masculine performances. Focusing on the individual production of friendship limits consideration of the construction of different dyads within one social network. Open-ended interviews with twelve men about each of their close friendships focused analysis on the dyad and not the individual. From the study, it was found that men established four different typologies of friendships (non-active, closed active, open active, expressive). While each friendship dyad differed in form and intimacy, all were influenced by the social construction of masculinity in these men’s lives.
