Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to point out different aspects of modernity in the cookbook Husmoderns Köksalmanack. It is a publication that has been published annually since 1933. The books have been studied in the light of Anthony Giddens´ theoretical perspective on modernity. The study is based on three different themes that all can be linked to modernity. These themes are; Time and space, Locally, regionally and globally, and Advice. I also want to demonstrate that these books can be seen as part of a larger structural context. The results show that Husmoderns Köksalmanack can be viewed as an arena for several aspects of modernity, and it can also help to create and maintain social norms in this area.
