about

This book examines the continuing poor relationship between boys and the study of foreign languages and is framed by discussion of gender socialization, gendered curriculum practices and cultural narratives about boys and schooling. The core of the book is constructed by boys themselves. Their commentaries raise important issues for language teachers and curriculum planners, but also for everyone involved in wider conversations about boys, language, literacy and education.
Jo Carr is Senior Lecturer in the School of Cultural and Language Studies in Education at the Queensland University of Technology, Australia.  Anne Pauwels is Professor of Linguistics and Dean of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Western Australia.
