Michael Kehler

He was awarded a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council funded project to examine why some boys are reluctant to participate in grade nine Health and Physical Education classes. As a masculinities scholar he questions the intersections between gender, schooling and health with a particular focus on the sociology of the body. Earlier research of a smaller population of students in south western Ontario provided the foundation for this larger study which spans three provinces including: British Columbia, Ontario and Nova Scotia. The project runs September 2008-2010.
