Abstract [en]

Since working-class masculinity has traditionally been closely connected to wage labor and the ability to provide for oneself, the lack of resources associated with unemployment among working-class men implies a need to redefine one’s own self-understanding. This chapter discusses the narratives of 12 young unemployed working-class men living in a small, deindustrialized town on the east coast of Sweden. From a situation much characterized by deficiency and marginalization, an alternative understanding of the meaning of work is developing, intertwined with alternative conceptions of masculinity. These tendencies are partly related to the state of unemployment and the marginalized position stemming from it, indicating that important and critical changes to masculinity are taking place also there, far from the more privileged locations.
