Country Boys: Masculinity and Rural Life

Availability: Ready to download

Rural masculinity is hardly a typical topic for a book. There is something unexpected, faintly disturbing, even humorous about investigating that which has long been seen and yet so often overlooked. But the ways in which we think about and socially organize masculinity are of great significance in the lives of both men and women. In Country Boys we also see that masculini Rural masculinity is hardly a typical topic for a book. There is something unexpected, faintly disturbing, even humorous about investigating that which has long been seen and yet so often overlooked. But the ways in which we think about and socially organize masculinity are of great significance in the lives of both men and women. In Country Boys we also see that masculinity is no less significant in rural life than in urban life. The essays in this volume offer much-needed insight into the myths and stereotypes as well as the reality of the lives of rural men. Interdisciplinary in scope, the contributions investigate what it means to be a farming man, a logging man, or a boy growing up in a country town and how this impacts both men and women in city and country. Chapters cover not only the United States but also Europe, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand, giving the book an unusually broad scope.

    Many of the chapters weren't super relevant to ways I have been thinking about gender and sexuality, but I did like the exploration of a rising wave of masculinity and sexuality that is focused on expression, environmental protection, and spirituality. These ideas were in the chapter that discussed sustainable agriculture and pitted a 1950's Reagan masculinity of masculine farmers subjugating a feminine earth against a conscientious farming masculinity that is more connected with the earth and t Many of the chapters weren't super relevant to ways I have been thinking about gender and sexuality, but I did like the exploration of a rising wave of masculinity and sexuality that is focused on expression, environmental protection, and spirituality.
