Gråtens världar. Perspektiv på mäns tårar.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This study, based on interviews with army officers, focuses on crying as an action, creating meaning in our interpretation of the world. The discourse of male crying includes the image of a man wanting to express himself emotionally, but unable to because of the traditional ideal of self-control.
