Domesticating Military Masculinities: Home, Performance and the Negotiation of Identity

Allbwn ymchwil: Cyfraniad at gyfnodolynRhifyn arbennigadolygiad gan gymheiriaid


Here, I explore the domestication of masculine identities that occurs within the British Army, and the transitions that take place upon re-entry into civilian life. Through oral accounts I highlight how men renegotiate their identity within the ‘home’ and within ‘society’ and seek to add to the debate on how we analyse a cultural repertoire of masculinities that are appropriate to particular places. In particular, I draw out: (1) how a domesticated body fit for purpose is created and maintained within the British Army; (2) how and with what effect an embodied routine and self-discipline is transferred into a home environment; and (3) the re-imaging of home life through the performance of these masculine identities.
