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 history - was directed to both women and men, to femininity and masculinity as cultural and social constructions. Some historians then went ‘back’ to his-story from a new perspective, looking at the history 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 an undifferenciated category of patriarchy. This has led to studying men in the different arenas where they were acting, including the domestic.
