The depiction of mothers' and fathers' alcohol and drug use in Swedish news press : A Critical Discourse Analysis of Dagens Nyheter and Aftonbladet (English)
Abstract [en]

Parents’ use of alcohol and drugs is a subject which is discussed in various fields of research and social domains by different actors and professions. The aim of this study is to identify and analyse discourses which appear in Swedish news press (Dagens Nyheter and Aftonbladet), and which similarities and differences that can be discovered regarding motherhood and fatherhood in relation to alcohol and drug use. A Critical Discourse Analysis has been carried out based on Norman Fairclough’s three-dimensional analytical model. The result shows that it is not possible to identify any distinct discourses in the material. Instead three wider discussions where identified: moral discussions about parenthood, discussions on the medical effects of alcohol and drug use, and reflexive and norm critical discussions about current gender roles. The study shows that news press discusses the fact that women’s/mothers’ use of alcohol and drugs tends to be described as more unacceptable and stigmatising in comparison to men’s/father’s use. The number of news articles discussing men’s/father’s use of alcohol and drugs, as well as parents’ drug use, are limited. The study also shows that there are signs of a more gender neutral outlook on parenthood in relation to alcohol and drug use.
