Crafting Masculine Selves

Andrea Chiovenda

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents a briefer profile of four more individuals from Nangarhar province. The common theme among them is their coming of age in a quickly morphing social and cultural environment, and the frictions (both internally and outwardly) that each of them has to go through in order to make sense of contradictory cultural cues in a volatile political space. The author followed these four adolescents into their early adulthood and participated in their struggle to shape a future for themselves, amid war, new opportunities, and the call of tradition.

Keywords:   Afghanistan, Pashtun, adolescence, coming of age, modernity, violence, developmental dynamics, tradition
