Boyhood Studies will be published semi-annually by Berghahn Journals as of Spring 2015.
One of the core missions of the journal is to initiate conversation among disciplines, research angles, and intellectual viewpoints. Both theoretical and empirical contributions fit the journal’s scope with critical literature reviews and review essays also welcomed. Possible topics include boyish and tomboyish genders; boys and schooling; boys and (post)feminisms; the folklore, mythology, and poetics of “male development”; son-parent and male student-teacher relations; young masculinities in the digital and postdigital ages; young sexualities; as well as representations of boyhoods across temporalities, geographies, and cultures.
Articles should generally be approximately 6,500 words including notes and references. Authors should submit articles per email attachment, formatted as Microsoft Word files.
