The Europeans as the world´s masters : A textbook analysis about ethnicity in history for grade 4–6 (English)
Abstract [sv]

Den svenska skolan är idag en kulturell mötes­plats. Många av dagens elever har en annan kul­turell bakgrund än svensk. Det mångkulturella samhället speglas dock inte i de läroböcker som används i historieundervis­ningen. Syftet med studien att undersöka om läroböcker i historia för år 4–6, skrivna efter år 2011 överensstämmer med det mångkulturella klassrummet. Studien genomfördes med en pedagogisk texta­nalys och har det hermeneutiska perspektivet som ansats. Genom textanalysen studerades tre läroböcker i historia för år 4–6. Studien visade att läroböck­erna är eurocentriska och att repre­sentationen av de etniska grupperna som inte till­hörde Europa var väldigt liten. Läroböckerna framställer endast utomeuropeiska etniciteter när dessa grupper kommer i kontakt Europa.

Abstract [en]

Today the Swedish school is a meeting place for cultural diversity. A lot of today’s students have another cultural background than a Swedish one. The textbooks currently in use in today’s history education do not reflect the multicultural society that Sweden has today. The aim of this study is to study textbooks in history for grade 4–6, written after year 2011, to see if they conform to the multicultural classroom. The study was carried out through out a pedagogical text analysis and the theoretical approach is the hermeneutic perspective. Three textbooks for grade 4–6 were studied through the text analysis. The study shows that the textbooks were eurocentric and the representation of ethnical groups that did not belong in Europe was very small. The textbooks only presented non-european ethnicities when these groups came in contact with Europe.
