Visualizing Peer Connections: The Gendered Realities of African American College Men's Interpersonal Relationships
McGowan, Brian L.
Journal of College Student Development, v57 n7 p983-1000 Oct 2017
I explored how African American college men conceptualized gender within their interpersonal relationships at a traditionally White institution. In interviews using both semistructured and photo elicitation interview formats, 17 participants shared stories about their interpersonal relationships with other men and ascribed multiple meanings to images that yielded key insights into how they developed and maintained peer connections on campus. Recommendations for practice and implications for future studies using visual methods to understand African American college men's experiences are offered.
