The Awkward Spaces of Fathering
The author explores how fathering identities are shaped by family and community spaces and aims to move the definition of 'fathering' beyond its definition in opposition to 'mothering'. In doing so, he provides insights into the contradictory nature of fathers' lives and argues that the emotional work of fathering is an heroic act.
