Abstract [en]

Transforming Problematic Masculinity: A Case Study of Boys’ Education in the Sports Locker RoomThe purpose of the study was through a case study to analyze the staging and experiences of an educational intervention carried out with teamsports active boys in Sweden, which aimed to change a problematic masculinity in Swedish society. The case study is ethnographic in naturewhere an authentic educational process is followed and studied throughobservations, interviews and documents. The empirical material consistsof observations of 14 intervention sessions with 100 boys (10–14 years ofage), interviews with in total 17 participants; ten boys, three coaches, twoeducators and two operations managers. This article problematizes howintentions to change problematic masculinity is expressed through interventions with boys within the framework of team sports in Sweden. Newknowledge is created about how different forms of masculinities are presented, negotiated, and challenged in education of boys in a sports lockerroom context. The results show that with different views on the problemsamong those involved, the intervention, as a solution to problematic masculinity, risks becoming counterproductive, which is reinforced if the content is not relevant to and adapted for the young target group. We arguefor a more nuanced views on problematic masculinity, especially in relation to interventions-based education of young boys in sport as a solutionwhich is in focus in this study.
