This stimulating book sets out to critically explore the notion of men, masculinities and teaching in early childhood education. It addresses the global pattern of gender, teaching and care where men are in the minority, and explores the notion that the greater involvement of men within teaching and associated professions has the potential to transform gender relations for future generations. International contributors raise critical questions about the construction of masculinities, the continuing reluctance of men to engage in this type of work, and the influence of political and public debates on the issue. Through this engaging discussion readers are asked to question whether this is something that we should care about, with key topics including: The roles of men in education and care Teachers’ beliefs, norms and values of gender equality The construction of male identities Gendered ideals, and children’s interpretations of gender. Men, Masculinities and Teaching in Early Childhood Education brings together a refreshing and critical set of perspectives linked to an increasingly important educational debate and will be a valuable text for practitioners, professionals, policy makers and parents/carers.

In den letzten Jahren hat sich eine internationale Debatte zu 'Männern in Kitas' entwickelt. Irmgard Diewald geht der Frage nach, wie dabei - an der Schnittstelle von Politik und Wissenschaft - Geschlechterverhältnisse entlang eines Kontinuums zwischen naturalisiertem sowie (de-)konstruktivistischem Wissen von Geschlecht in Bewegung geraten. In einer ländervergleichenden Perspektive zwischen Deutschland und Schweden sowie anhand theoretischer Überlegungen, welche sich in der poststrukturalistischen feministischen Wohlfahrtsstaatsforschung verorten, zeigt sie, wie sich der Ruf nach (mehr) »Männern« zwischen arbeitsmarktpolitischen Anforderungen und gleichstellungspolitischen Bestrebungen bewegt.

This book examines the current interest in recruiting and supporting more men in the early childhood education workforce. Drawing on extensive empirical data from case studies of an unusual English preschool setting and interviews with Swedish male preschool staff, the author explores the potential benefits to society linked to the increased presence of men in early childhood education, and how this might be achieved. Throughout the book, the author maintains that the potential of including more men in early childhood education can only be achieved by gender-sensitive practitioners, both women and men, who are willing to create a gender-flexible pedagogy. This volume will be of interest and value to students, academics and practitioners interested in gender diversity and equity within early childhood education and care.

This book is an ethnography of teachers and children in grades 1 and 2, and presents arguments about why we should take gender and childhood sexuality seriously in the early years of South African primary schooling. Taking issue with dominant discourses which assumes children’s lack of agency, the book questions the epistemological foundations of childhood discourses that produce innocence. It examines the paradox between teachers’ dominant narratives of childhood innocence and children’s own conceptualisation of gender and sexuality inside the classroom, with peers, in heterosexual games, in the playground and through boyfriend-girlfriend relationships. It examines the nuances and finely situated experiences which draw attention to hegemonic masculinity and femininity where boys and girls challenge and contest relations of power. The book focuses on the early makings of gender and sexual harassment and shows how violent gender relations are manifest even amongst very young boys and girls. Attention is given to the interconnections with race, class, structural inequalities, as well as the actions of boys and girls as navigate gender and sexuality at school. The book argues that the early years of primary schooling are a key site for the production and reproduction of gender and sexuality. Gender reform strategies are vital in this sector of schooling.
