Researching Gender and Sexuality in Schools

(p.3) 1 Researching Gender and Sexuality in Schools
The Declining Significance of Homophobia

Mark McCormack

Oxford University Press

The chapter examines how sexuality and gender are traditionally researched in school settings. Exploring the methods that are used to study masculinities, highlighting their different styles and potential pitfalls, this chapter situates the book within the methodological school of ethnography. Here, the researcher embeds him or her self into the world of those researched, learning to view the social world through their eyes. The chapter closers with a strong defense of the use of social constructionist theorizing to understand gender and sexuality, critiquing the poststructuralist turn in sexualities studies.

Keywords:   ethnography, qualitative, social constructionism, poststructuralism, methods
