My research interests are in the areas of masculinity and gender, education, children and youth, culture, and feminist theory. A current book project (under contract with the University of Minnesota Press) is an ethnography of two all-male public high schools. (Please see my CNN op-ed on the topic.) Other research examines the affective character of masculine dignity, cultural templates of urban masculinity, and the temporal dimensions of boyhood.
