Abstract: The term ‘boys will be boys’ is widely accepted in society as if masculine identity is innate and natural. This paper adopts a social-constructivist approach to gender which view gender identity as a product of culture and nurture. This article assumes that boys construct their masculinity through various modalities including social learning with both adults or peer groups and non-human interactions. This article examines existing literature published between 1980s-2010s about boys and masculinity to develop an understanding of how young boys construct their masculinities, what factors contribute to their masculine identity, and how the research about boys’ masculinities was prepared and conducted. The conceptual framework and methodology of each literature are the important parts of the investigation. Most of the literature was developed in non-Indonesian context. This paper will also examine the applicability of the literature in Indonesian context to produce a recommendation of nec essary modification for research about boys and masculinity in Indonesia.
