Bearded Masculinity

We created a new course at School 21 called Great Texts to give students a chance to wrestle with big ideas and great texts from the past. A unit we devised looking at great feminist texts and ideas of masculinity really seized the imagination of pupils. We didn't discuss specifically how beards might contribute to notions of masculinity but these photos I hope can add to the debate.
