"Having a Laugh, Having a Fight": Masculinity and the Conflicting Needs of the Self in Design and Technology.
Dixon, Carolyn
International Studies in Sociology of Education, v6 n2 p147-66 1996
Explores the tensions and interactions among four 13-year-old boys in a British secondary classroom. Suggests that the boys subscribe to a hegemonic ideal of masculinity that celebrates autonomy as the individualized rejection of dependence in relationships in school. Relates this to broader changes in available social texts. (MJP)
