”I do not understand how any one, even females could like this atrocius rubbish piece of filmmaking”: En kvalitativ studie av hur subjektspositioner konstrueras i relation till Twilight igenom IMDB:s kommentarsfunktion.

Abstract [en]

The present study investigates comments posted on IMDB, in an effort to shed light on how these comments create and navigate subject and object positions in relation to Twilight (2008)and its intended audience. In so doing, the study implements a Bourdieusian theoretical framework centered on habitus; field; cultural capital; symbolic violence, and taste. The study also draws on Connell’s theory of masculinities, utilizing the notion of hegemony in the study the aforementioned subject positions from an intersectional point of view. Through a thematic close reading, the present study finds that masculine subject positions are created and maintained in opposition to Twilight and its intended audience. Furthermore, these subject positions relied on symbolic violence in order to distance their position – which the study considers to be one of hegemonic masculinity – from the movie and its fans. Apart from gender, age also played a large part of this distancing process; young, irrational women were positioned as the polar opposite of the reasonable, masculine subject positions whose points of view were presented in the comments.
