Grant Activity:
Australian Boys: Beyond the Boy Problem
Purpose:
In Australia, most research on boys and boyhood is focused on risk-reduction, representing boys as problems at school, on the streets, or in relationships, with an ambivalent (if not oppositional) relation to feminism. At the same time, anti-feminist public discourse highlighting the experiences of boys and young men is used to justify violence towards women as well as call for the reversal of social changes that have expanded opportunities available to girls. This research project will develop a framework for interdisciplinary research that takes Australian boys and boyhood as the subjects of a more inclusive future, working to overcome ingrained oppositions between feminist scholarship and the lives and interests of boys.
