The topics of the journal will include boys and schooling, boys and feminism, parenting boys, son-father relations and the effect on boys of the missing father, boyhood subcultures and sexualities, physical and emotional abuse of boys, portrayal of boys in the media, boys in sports, and the folklore and myths of boyhood. THYMOS is committed to being international in scope and will solicit manuscripts from a variety of disciplines, including sociology, developmental psychology, sexology, psychoanalytic studies, ethnography and ethnology, history and historiography, cultural studies, literature, philosophy, pedagogy, and clinical and community health-care practice."
