Title Läraren i nutida svensk barn - och ungdomslitteratur
Author(s) Hilton, Mikaela
Date 2013
English abstract
'Teachers in current Swedish child- and youth literature' is an essay that attempts to understand the reasons behind why authors portray teachers the way they do. The foundation and focus point of this essay are ten Swedish child and youth books that were all published during 2012. Throughout this essay I have analyzed the fictional teachers in these books using the discourse analysis method but also employed a gender perspective. The main questions were these: Do the teachers presented in these books follow the curriculum LGR - 11, or do they represent the authors own education experience brought forward to current settings? Furthermore, was there a difference in how female and male teachers were represented? And if so what, possible reasons could account for that? The conclusions made were thus: • The teacher characters within these books were mostly a throwback to days gone by, therefore reflecting the authors own memories of their school. • They were mainly presented to the reader in a negative light which most likely has its roots in how Swedish school and Swedish teachers have been portrayed within the mass media. • That there was indeed gender stereotyping in how female and male teachers were described.
