Searching for Manhood: Reflecting Growing up in a Chinese Way
Koon-Ming HO & Yuk-Shuen WONG（何冠明、黃玉璇）
This article reported a qualitative research based on Giorgi’s (1975a, 1975b) phenomenological methodology that studied male identity formation of Chinese Canadian immigrants who grew up in China and later settled down in Canada. The purpose was to explore how their male identity developed, their current ideas about being men, and what they wanted to become in the future. The data yielded a theme that they learnt to be men by their own searching. Their experience of navigating across two cultures revealed some characteristics of growing up in a Chinese culture and the journey of searching for male identity in Canada.
