Abstract:The Swedish state decided to build and assume the responsibility for Bona, a big “Borstal” for bringing up “vicious” boys 1905 – 1948. The boys from 15 to 18 years old, were sentenced by the courts for petty crimes, but got their punishments transformed to compulsory upbringing with no time limit. Their education at Bona was steered by fear of God and work discipline, officially. This is an investigation about how some of the clergymen used their privileged positions within the insti¬tution to construct various gender ideals, some of them more arbitrary and ambivalent than others. By practising a doing gender-perspective the different relations, representations and practices, used by the clergymen towards the boys, will be analysed. R.W. Connell´s theory on masculinities and the often contradictory processes in a gender regime will thus be illustrated.
