”Only girls can be Lucia!” : - The world of preschool in picture books from a gender perspective (English)
Abstract [en]

The starting point for this study is to analyze and explore representations of gender in picturebooks depicting preschool. The Swedish preschool works after the curriculum, where workwith gender is included, and with values that should reflect the practice. This work should bemediated by those who are active in the preschool. Literature, and the interpretation thereof, plays an important role in the preschool which this study will raise the importance of. Literature affects its receiver and the preschool in today’s society in Sweden is a commonplace for children, therefore this study will focus on picture books that portray the everydaydepictions that take place in the preschool environment. Seven picture books released between 1976 and 2016 have been subjected to qualitative image and text analysis where the iconotexthas a large place in the analysis of the study. The gender analysis is done with focus on whichnorms that are represented in literature, with gender markers and gender system connected tostereotypical behaviour with boys and girls in mind. This is also set in the relation to thecurrent curriculum in the Swedish preschool. The investigation of these issues shows that thebehaviour of the characters in the picture books both affirm and reject the norms that areconnected to gender. This is shown in picture books from different eras.

Sju bilderböcker utgivnamellan 1976 – 2016 har analyserats med hjälp av kvalitativ bild- och textanalys därikonotexten har fått stort utrymme i studiens analyser. Genusanalysen är gjord med fokus påvilka normer som representeras i litteratur, med könsmarkörer och genusframställningarkopplat till stereotypa beteenden hos pojkar och flickor i åtanke. Detta ställs också i relationtill de rådande styrdokumenten. Studiens analyser visar på beteenden hos karaktärer ibilderböckerna som både bekräftar och bryter normer kopplat till kön.
