Abstract

The article provides a short overview of recent research on male domesticity. Domesticity has for a long time been analysed as a female arena. Things changed when the focus – thanks to gender histo-ry – was directed to both women and men, to femininity and masculinity as cultural and social con-structions. Some historians then went ‘back’ to his-story from a new perspective, looking at the his-tory of men not as unmarked but as a particular one, and one that must also be dissected into its several components, avoiding the inclusion of all men into the category of patriarchy. This has led to studying men in the different arenas where they were acting, including the domestic.
