Summary/Abstract: The author of the text asks about locality of masculinity categories. He refers to the framework theories of Raewyn Connell, Pierre Bourdieu and Franco La Cecla and postulates attempt to create local model/local models of masculinity – similarly to glocal use of Edward Said’s theory (e.g. balkanization and postdependence). Autobiographical subjectivity, research of biographies of Polish men supporting emancipatory movements and attempts to write autobiographies and biographies of masculinity included in 19th and 20th-century intimate writing and fiction texts can be the grounds for such a masculinity model.
