Abstract

This article explores the construction of masculinities within narratives collected via oral history interviews. In line with the literature on "nation" and gender in Kosovo, this research acknowledges the presence of two main forms of masculinity: the "heroic fighter" and the "pacifist". However, it also demonstrates the crystallization of the "entrepreneur", an alternative type who integrates the transnational "neoliberal" discourses and proposes a more positive image of "Albanian men" in Switzerland.
