Teenage Boys' Leisure Reading Dispositions: Juggling Male Youth Culture and Family Cultural Capital.
Love, Kristina; Hamston, Julie
Educational Review, v55 n2 p161-77 Jun 2003
Interviews with three teenage boys and their parents in a middle-class community explored why the boys self-identify as reluctant readers, resisting approved forms of literacy. They pursue types of reading that contribute to their construction of masculine identities; their parents' attempts to influence reading are conditioned by traditional notions of literacy.
