Summary

In northern Ethiopia, men and women build houses together but they use different building techniques to do so. These gendered technical practices are used in other gendered tasks that are concentrated in different but overlapping spatial realms, where men and women perform daily activities. It is proposed that gendered technical practice constitutes identities and relationships by creating a gendered material world that makes sense of who makes what, where, when, and how.
