Gender patterns in the preschools childrens litterature : An analysis of childrens litteratur in preschool from a gender perspective (English)
Abstract [sv]

I det här examensarbetet analyserades sammanlagt femton barnböcker. Barnböckerna har pekats ut av pedagoger från tre olika förskoleavdelningar som de mest lästa barnböckerna på avdelningarna. Fem böcker från varje avdelning utifrån pedagogernas egna uppfattning om vilka böcker som läses mest. Böckerna analyseras utifrån det schema som sammanställts av Maria Nikolajeva (2004, s. 129) och som är en mall för att avgöra om kvinnor och män skildras stereotypt i böcker.

Resultatet visar att det finns både stereotypa och normbrytande skildringar i barnlitteraturen. Fler pojkar än flickor förekom som huvudpersoner i de analyserade böckerna. Passiva flickor och aktiva pojkar var vanligt förekommande. Makt och handlingsutrymme var starkt kopplade till de stereotypt manliga egenskaperna. Det var genom ett manligt beteende som karaktärerna tilläts ha makten.

Abstract [en]

In this essay, a total of fifteen childrens books were analyzed. The childrens books has been pointed out by educators from three diffrent preeschool units as the most read childrens books on the units. Five books from each unit based on the educators estimation on which books are mostly read. The books were analyzed based on the schedule compiled by Maria Nikolajeva (2004, p. 129) and which is a template for determining whether women and men are portrayed stereotypically in books.

The result shows that there are both stereotypical and norm-breaking descriptions in childrens literature. More boys than girls appeared as protagonists in the analyzed books. Passive girls and active boys were commonplace. Power and room for maneuver were strongly linked to the stereotypical male characteristics. It was through a male behavior that the characters were allowed to have power.
