Muslim students vs. Islam in Religious education : A case study on Muslim High School Student´s Experiences of Islam in Swedish Religious Education (English)
Abstract [sv]

Islam är en av världsreligionerna och har miljoner anhängare världen över. Det finns en allmän uppfattning om islams problematik, så till vida att islam sällan får rätt presentation, då exempelvis inom massmedia och skola. Frågan är hur skolan, som är vårt största lärosäte presenterar en religion rättvist och utan fördomar, hur en religion blir presenterat på ett icke nyanserat sätt.

Uppsatsens syfte är att söka svar på hur islam framställs i svensk gymnasieskola, med metoder som dokumentstudier, fokusgrupp och djupintervjuer, där muslimska elever berättar om erfarenheter och upplevelser.

Generella slutsatser som framkommit är att muslimska elever anser att svensk gymnasieskola ger en delvis positiv bild av islam, som religion, men med vissa brister, såsom etnocentriskt tänkande, i muntlig presentation och text. Elever har även pekat på en viss marginalisering och distansering gällande islams presentation i undervisningen.

Abstract [en]

Islam is one of the religions in the world and has millions of followers around the world. However, it has been argued that Islam rarely gets portrayed impartially in for example mass media and education. The objective of this essay is to understand how Swedish Muslim high school students experience the presentation of Islam in religious education. Empirical data have been collected by means of analysis of textbooks, focus group interview and one- to- one in-depth interviews. Principal findings of the study suggest that Swedish Muslim high school students consider that, in general, Islam gets portrayed fairly in religious education. However, the shortcomings pointed out by the students included in the study of religious education, in terms of how Islam is portrayed, are ethnocentricity as well as marginalisation and dissociation.
