Abstract [en]

This paper will report on initial findings from a doctoral study that uses video recordings to investigate boys' embodied performances of masculinities in school physical education. Many studies have investigated girls' alienation and lack of participation in physical education (e.g. Hastie, 1998; Ennis, 1999; Azzarito, Solmon & Harrison, 2006). However, few studies have focused on boys' experiences of physical education. Moreover, as pointed out by Lundvall (2004), studies investigating gendered experiences of physical education, are typically comparative and rarely look at differences within genders. Additionally, Azzarito (2010) has called for the inclusion of research methods, specifically visual methodologies, which "enable young people to "speak" meaningfully about their experiences and ways of knowing about the body in physical activity contexts" (p. 155). My doctoral research, designed in relation to this literature, uses video recordings of boys participating in physical education, in both focus group and individual interviews, to explore the participants' interpretations of the multiple, contradictory and competing nature of masculinity performances. The video data is, thus, used to present the boys' perspectives and allows them to provide an interpretation of how they experienced particular situations. I interpret the data via Foucauldian poststructuralism to highlight the multiple and competing discourses of masculinities that boys have to negotiate in and through school physical education.
