The object of the talk is to discuss the formation of the self in relation to space, gender and property in the early modern period using the example of the pulling down of “dishonest houses” in Stockholm in July 1719. Through court proceedings and inventories of lost goods we can follow not only how thirteen houses were attacked a summer night, but also how the crowd used a gendered conception of space in legitimizing their attacks, how public and private issues were blurred and entwined with perceptions of property when the local community restored order afterwards, and how the attacked women used their claims to their lost possessions as a means of refashioning themselves after the attacks.
