Call for Papers: Boyhood and Belonging: Interdisciplinary perspectives on the roles of space and place on young men’s identities

This special issue of Boyhood Studies (Volume 12, Issue 2,) will draw on interdisciplinary perspectives of space and place in order to investigate male identities. The issue will enhance our understanding of boys and young men’s practices as they negotiate a sense of belonging, investment in peer cultures and via relationships with ‘territories’ and places. More specifically, the issue seeks to understand the manner in which the practices, discourses and ethos of particular locales, spaces and institutions shape the opportunities and ‘ways of being’ for boys and young men. We also aim to look at how interactions and relationships with girls, young women, sisters, mothers, and grandmothers shape boyhood and boys’ lives, and more specifically, their sense of belonging. Abstracts due May 30.
