Abstract [sv]

Uppsatsen undersöker den yttre skepnadens betydelse i mänskliga transformationer som förekommer i Saᵓadallāh Wannūs drama "Tuqūs al-išārāt wa al-taḥawwulāt" - "Ritualer för apparition och transformation". Med skepnad menas kläder, mask och genusbetingade attribut. Undersökningen är baserad på tre teoretiska områden: Queer theory och crossdressing, klädsel och sociala koder samt kvinnan i samhället. Analysen drar också nytta av vissa begrepp av Gerard Genette och A.J. Greimas som handlar om diskursanalys. Rollfigurerna genomgår metamorfoser av psykologisk och social karaktär. Jag visar hur förändringen av deras yttre apparition är avgörande för hur metamorfoserna effektueras och registreras av omgivningen. Resultatet visar att en inre, men osynlig, transformation inte är lika avgörande som en yttre, då den senare utmanar omgivningen och provocerar fram en motreaktion. En yttre omdaning kan destabilisera samhällsstrukturen, om den bryter mot normerna,

Abstract [en]

This thesis investigates the significance of outer appearance in human transformations, that occur in Saᵓadallāh Wannūs play "Tuqūs al-išārāt wa al-taḥawwulāt" - "Rituals of Signs and Transformations". Outer appearance i signified by costume, mask and gender-determined attributes. The investigation is done within three theoretical sectors: Queer theory and cross-dressing, clothes and social codes and women in society. The analyses also benefits from certain concepts  by Gerard Genette and A.J. Greimas that deal with discourse analyses. The characters go through transformations of a social and psychological character. I demonstrate that the outer appearance is essential for how these are executed and received. My result shows, that an inner, but invisible, change is not as crucial as an outer, as the latter presents a challenge to people and provokes a counter-reaction. An outer appearance can destabilize the social structure, if it violates the standard conformity.
