Dyer, Hannah – Gender and Education, 2019
In this article, I contend that underneath the 2015 sex-ed debates in Ontario are deep-seated, psycho-socially entrenched problems related to thinking about childhood sexuality. I consider how the topic of sex-ed for children, over and above its actual curricular lessons, is marshaled to accomplish the work of the adult's psycho-social needs.…

Charteris, Jennifer; Gregory, Sue; Masters, Yvonne – Gender and Education, 2018
Research on youth subjectivities and disappearing media is still in its infancy. Ephemeral technologies such as Snapchat, Frankly and Wickr offer young people opportunities for discursive agency, harnessing teenage discourses of social positioning.

Globally, sexuality education is framed as a key programmatic strategy for achieving HIV prevention among youth.
