I’m on the MenTeach listserve and thought I would share a recent publication of mine that may be of interest to you and your colleagues. I cited your 2002 book in my own work. As the description indicates at the link below, I interviewed and observed men in a wide range of youth work settings, including elementary, middle, and high school teachers. I also have a separate section on men and schools in the book.

Thus, my approach is electic–looking at men’s youth work broadly while exploring men’s contributions in particular areas and noting the overlap between different types of youth work experience (volunteer/paid).

William Marsiglio’s new qualitative study, presented in his book, Men on a Mission: Valuing Youth Work in Our Communities (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2008), is now available.
