Which history are we talking about? : An qualitative study if the female pupils can identify themselves with the history classes that they take part in the upper secondary school (English)
Abstract [en]

This study is based on interviews and aims to shed some light upon the teaching of history in the swedish upper secondary school. Is it possible for the female pupils, to identify themself with the way it's presented? There's been different studies regarding how women are portrayed in the history books, are they there at all or are they forgotten? I interviewed eight female pupils to find out if they could indentify themself with the subject, and if not, what could we do as teacher to make it more relevant for them and easier to indentify themself with the subject? The results shows that most of them can't indentify themself with the subject, feeling that it's a mans world - nothing to do with them. At the same time they say that the subject can come in handy to know why certain things happend and to learn by our mistakes. In general the pupils told me that the subject was more interesting when the teacher shows and talks more about women. With that being said, they didn’t say that they wanted the different historical characters that are men gone, just that women should get the same attention. By knowing that the female pupils feels like this we could make the subject more relevant for them and easier to indentify themself with it.
