In my thesis I study the Swedish speaking Civil Guards in Ostrobothnia (Vaasa Civil Guard District) and Turunmaa (Turunmaa Civil Guard District) during the time period 1918 to 1939. More specifically, I use an intersectional perspective to examine how these Civil Guards constructed their own Swedish identity in relation to different expressions of masculinities, minority nationalism and social differences.
