Frank G. Karioris, member of the Board of Directors of the American Men’s Studies Association and Visiting Lecturer of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies at the University of Pittsburgh, recently published An Education in Sexuality and Sociality: Heteronormativity on Campus (Rowman & Littlefield, 2018).
In her review, Nancy Lindisfarne explains: “Male friendships and vulnerability are at the heart of Karioris’ intimate ethnography. The careful fieldwork of An Education in Sexuality and Sociality offers us an important and original corrective to the stereotypes of college men as violent misogynists. Karioris shows us instead how homosociality can be a form of resistance and source of self-esteem on a campus saturated with heteronormative values, hook-up myths, and class hierarchies.”
Karioris’ book joins a growing body of scholarship on college masculinities.
