Diskurser om breddad rekrytering: Analys av några offentliga texter
Karlstad University, Faculty of Arts and Education.
2006 (Swedish)Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to investigate the discourses of widening recruitment to higher education in some political documents from the 21st century. The scientific method applied is critical discourse analysis as developed by Norman Fairclough. This implies the analyses of the actual texts, the social practice as well as the discursive practice, i.e. the conditions under which the texts are produced, distributed and consumed.

The major results include four discourses: a post-modern discourse, a neoliberal economic discourse, a political discourse of multi-culturalism and a modern discourse with its roots in the 20th century’s discussions about social imbalance in recruitment to higher education. The material shows a discursive struggle between ways of constructing widening recruitment and underrepresented groups, as well as the hegemonic, implicit conviction that higher education is advantegous.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med uppsatsen är att undersöka vilka berättelser om breddad rekrytering som finns i några politiska dokument från 2000-talet. Jag använder kritisk diskursanalys så som den utvecklats av Norman Fairclough. Det innebär analyser av såväl text, som social praktik och diskursiv praktik, som innefattar villkor för produktion, distribution och konsumtion av texter.

De huvudsakliga resultaten visar en diskursordning som innehåller fyra diskurser: en postmodern diskurs, en neoliberal ekonomisk diskurs, en politisk diskurs om mångkulturalism och en modern diskurs med rötter i 1900-talets diskussioner om social snedrekrytering. Materialet visar också en diskursiv kamp mellan olika sätt att konstituera breddad rekrytering och under-representerade grupper, såväl som en outtalad, gemensam övertygelse om det fördelaktiga med högre utbildning.
