Abstract

In this paper we address important issues related to boys' education within the context of a backlash politics against feminism. We draw on relevant and significant literature in Australia, the UK and North America to shed light on the ways in which a resurgence of the 'Right' has operated to colonise the pedagogical space in relation to setting the boys' educational agenda. Some important theoretical and ethodological issues for both teachers and researchers are addressed.
