Bryan, Nathaniel – Gender and Education, 2019
Play is a gendered activity among young children, especially boys. Boys often tend to be more actively engaged in the (re)production of gendered play. However, most research studies and conceptual papers have misread, ignored, devalued, or scrutinized the gendered ways Black boys engage in play. This idea is particularly true for Black boys who…

Eriksen, Ingunn Marie; Lyng, Selma Therese – Gender and Education, 2018
Although boys too are involved in relational aggression, their experiences are overshadowed by the focus on relational aggression among girls.

Green, Dari; Pulley, Tifanie; Jackson, Melinda; Martin, Lori Latrice; Fasching-Varner, Kenneth J. – Gender and Education, 2018
The number of Black females enrolled in colleges and universities has grown in recent years, particularly at predominately white institutions (PWIs). Currently, research on the rise of Black females at PWIs is limited and fails to adequately address the emotional, social, and mental well-being of these students. Recent studies also largely ignore…
