Abstract [en]

Background: Today, we no longer have an authority who reviews or approves teaching materials for schools. It is primarily the principals responsible for the teaching materials used in school to be in accordance with the curriculum. Before the school was communized 1991 in Sweden, Statens institut för läromedelsinformation (SIL) reviewed the teaching materials, which meant that the content of the study books was reviewed and they handed out information on how to use the materials. Aim: The purpose of this study is to examine how gender is portrayed in four textbooks that are used in teachings of social studies. The study also aims to investigate whether there are some differences and/or similarities over time. Two textbooks are from 1970s and the other two from after year 2010. To answer this, following questions where prepared:

§  How is male and female represented in text in teaching materials over time?

§  How is male and female representation in teaching materials over time?

§  What differences and / or similarities are the representation of male and female over time? 

Method: The method that’s being used in this study to analyze how gender is being portrayed and manufactured in both images and text is a qualitative discourse analysis. Results: The analysis shows that men and women generally were associated with the traditional conception of men and women characteristics. The results also show that men dominated in the textbooks and that women did not get as much space as the men.
