Abstract [en]

In contrast to the early twentieth century, when marriage could set an end to women’s working lives, early modern society was based on the fundamental necessity of married women’s work. This chapter looks at one part of the labor market where this was particularly salient: state service. The new states of Europe created a market in male labor and new career opportunities for men. States were, however, just as dependent on women’s work, both for their households and directly for the state. Looking at men’s and women’s work in four state-run sectors (the customs administration, the army, large-scale production units, and midwifery), this chapter explores the ways in which state formation, commercialization, and people’s everyday lives were entangled.

Abstract [en]

Based on the verb-oriented method and a unique collection of observations from court records, this article shows that both men and women did almost all categories of work in early modern Sweden. On the level of concrete tasks, however, there was both difference and similarity between the genders. Marital status exerted a strong influence on women’s sustenance activities, creating a clear distinction between unmarried and ever-married. These patterns were probably the effect of a labour legislation that forced young people without independent means to offer their bodies and time to masters and mistresses.

Abstract [en]

This article discusses why legitimacy remained a problem for the eighteenth-century Swedish state administration. Using the case of customs officials in the town of Orebro, the article shows that complaints from citizens about the behaviour of these men were rife. While not impartial, such complaints nevertheless highlight the problematic situation of lower state employees: they often lacked local networks and were poorly educated and badly paid. They were also subject to unrealistic expectations to carry out tasks in many places at the same time. This made it necessary for them to harness the human resources of the entire household. The author argues that while it is true that, in the long run, bureaucratization entailed a specialization and masculinization of state administration, in the shorter term the role of women, and particularly wives, probably increased.
