This book looks at men, masculinity and heterosexuality in global English language teaching. It examines contemporary theories in masculinity studies and applies these to issues such as the idealisation of white male bodies, the impact of male bonding, and the effects of marriage, singleness, and sexual desire on men's personal lives, and professional aspirations. It analyses a range of sources, including tales of adventurers and castaways, fictional characters in the arts and popular culture, and includes empirical studies of Western men teaching English in conversation schools and universities in Japan. Through these diverse approaches, the book explores many current concerns around teacher identity, gender and intercultural sexuality in a global industry.Ita#39;s this kind of a like you havea secretary, you have a personal assistant who does all that stuff for you and thata#39;s how ... when Italk about a#39;Ia#39;m having these problems doing this [Japanese language] stuffa#39; and they say a#39;you need a Japanese wifea#39;.
