Activity: External Academic EngagementExternal research and teaching

Description

This project is investigating the perspectives of men who attended elite boys’ schools including how they developed ideas about gender both within their schools and in their lives more broadly. Its purpose is to add to our stock of knowledge about the gendered cultures of such schools both historically, and more recently by recruiting men of various ages to be interviewed. The project aims to find out more about how such men across the generations understand gender issues, how they construct their responsibility when it comes to working toward gender equality, and how school cultures and experiences beyond schooling may have mediated these issues.
