Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study is to describe how children use material and what gendered gender roles are done in children's games at preschool. This I have studied through four observations on a department in a selected space that I am calling for the building space. The earlier research is based on being a boy or girl. Therefore, with this study, I want to see which gender roles the children do in the preschool regardless of the biological gender. I have emanated from poststructural and posthuman perspective that is relevant to my purpose because it is consistent with how children are made gender roles and not already are. Since the material is a big part of the study, posthumanistic viewpoint gets an important part as the material is seen as an agent in children's subject creation. From theories I have found concepts that are used to understand the analysis of the results. The study shows that the material in preschool is largely gender neutral and that the children often create gender neutral roles. There are materials that are difficult available as evidence of gender material and the children often mention gender-like games like mom, dad, children but rarely take these roles in play. A role that returned in my study was "dog" which can be seen as a gender-neutral role.
