Constructing and Experiencing Boyhoods in Research in London
Pattman, Rob; Frosh, Stephen; Phoenix, Ann
Gender and Education, v17 n5 p555-561 Dec 2005
When Rob was about 14-years-old, at an all male boarding school, he was so glad that he did not have a tiny penis like another boy who was called girl. He was popular because he was good at sport, missed his mum and dog terribly but never showed it (except a little to his mum and dog) and talked a lot about girls he fancied. These memories were triggered by an interview based study on the identities of 11- to 14-year-old boys in London which we conducted from 1997-2000. Rob was the interviewer, and he interviewed boys in groups (45: 36 single sex and nine mixed) and individually (79) in 12 London schools.
