Summary

This book is about boys’ experiences of being educated in independent single-sex schools in Canada. These experiences, which are oftentimes attributed to particular places and moments at school, reveal ways in which school places are both "companionable" and "influential" in how boys become available to themselves and others as they pursue the possibility of becoming somebody. Curious about how masculinities show up in places at school and studying the sorts of gendered subjectivities that such places invite, entice, support and deny, the book extends beyond traditional ways of thinking and writing about the production of masculinities in education by introducing a different set of conceptual orientations and inquiry practices, including post-masculinities, weak theory, and art-led research and thought practices.
