  • This paper focuses on research with adolescent males attending a Catholic co-educational high school. A Foucauldian framework provides the analysis for the normalizing regimes of practice through which particular homophobic and heterosexist versions of masculinity are enacted. Several of the boys interviewed question the effects of particular forms of masculinity in their lives. Issues of masculinity in schools are discussed.
