Abstract [en]

Men’s friendships have, within feminist studies, been seen as relations where, on the one hand, sexism and homophobia might be re/produced, or where, on the other hand, new, caring and relationship-oriented masculine positions could be developed. Men’s friendships are thus connected to gender relations and constructions of masculine positions, but despite their cultural and political significance, they remain undertheorized in Swedish research. Using cultural representations and in-depth interviews with men, I discuss men’s friendships with special attention to meaning-making processes around subjecthood, intimacy, relationality and masculinity, which I claim are closely related. I argue that a better understanding of friendships between men not only deepens the understanding of which subject positions, relationships and feelings that are made im/possible and un/available when it comes to men’s friendships in a Swedish context, but also opens up for new ways of imagining and exploring potential intimacies and solidarities between men.
