About Paul Borenberg

I research people's everyday life in the early modern period. My research interests focus on urban culture, work, drinking customs and the history of sexuality with a focus on the early 17th century. What kind of labour did men and women do? Where could people meet their friends in their spare time and how did you find a fiancé or fiancé?

My dissertation is about the everyday life of male and female life-cycle servants in Stockholm in the early 1600s. In the patriarchal 1600s, the servants were young people who lived unmarried in a master’s household. By examining their duties, their leisure time and their sexual relationships, I try to create a picture of what it meant to be a young servant in the 17th century.
In extension, I'm studying the patriarchal social order of the 17th century and how it functioned from below, from the perspective of the servants.
