Abstract

This excerpt from Vanzant speaks to the purpose of this research with incarcerated males. Succinctly, the issue—Vanzant's "harmful actions"/male criminal activity—is an age-old one with punishment as the antidote. This study, alternatively, chose to look at the issue from a learning perspective: men's learning, outside of the academy, to gain insights into themselves, their being as men, and to take ownership for "rerighting" themselves (their words), with literature serving as the medium.

Rattling the Cage: Incarcerated Men, Gender and the Construction of Maleness

This excerpt from Vanzant speaks to the purpose of this research with incarcerated males. Succinctly, the issue—Vanzant's "harmful actions"/male criminal activity—is an age-old one with punishment as the antidote. This study, alternatively, chose to look at the issue from a learning perspective: men's learning, outside of the academy, to gain insights into themselves, their being as men, and to take ownership for "rerighting" themselves (their words), with literature serving as the medium.
