Mediated Boyhoods: Boys, Teens, and Young Men in Popular Media and Culture brings together work from various disciplines that explores the relationships among the everyday lives of boys and such media platforms as television, films, games, sports, music, urban and suburban culture, fashion, young adult novels, Facebook, MySpace, and YouTube. Offering a comprehensive overview of boyhood studies, chapters consider questions about the current state of boyhood as it is represented in the popular media; the ways that boys are influenced by and work to influence popular culture; the ways that popular texts often reflect adult expectations, anxieties, and prejudices about boys and boyhood; and the ways that boys, teens, and young men are often able to reflect upon and to act, sometimes unpredictably, to resist, subvert, or re-imagine and re-create popular culture and media. The volume serves as a companion to Mediated Girlhoods: New Explorations of Girls' Media Culture, edited by Mary Celeste Kearney.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Taking up an impressive range of topics - among them gender queer `bois,' young adult fiction, teenage Somali Bantu wrestling fans, and multimedia about, for, and by male youth - this smart and lively collection further troubles the myth of a universal, self-evident boyhood. `Mediated Boyhoods' is a delight to read and a major scholarly achievement." (Kenneth Kidd, Associate Director of the Center for Children's Literature and Culture at the University of Florida)
"This collection provides a much-needed addition to gender studies of media, questioning how masculinity and boyhood are expressed in popular media, and how those media texts are used and interpreted by boys themselves. Covering a wide range of media forms including television, films, video games and the Internet, `Mediated Boyhood' makes an essential contribution to the field of media studies and masculinity." (Mia Consalvo, Associate Professor, School of Telecommunications, Ohio University)
