Abstract

This brief article argues for the development of a stronger psycho‐social perspective in the broad field of the sociology of education and, in particular, in studies of masculinities and schooling. The article suggests that such studies have much to gain from an understanding of unconscious fantasy and the mutually constitutive nature of the unconscious and the social. By the same token, it also argues that a psycho‐social perspective has much to gain from ethnographies of the school.
