: A semiotic image analysis with semiotic multimodality about the representation of masculinities in the Swedish magazine King (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to examine how the Swedish magazine King represent masculinity in its personal portrait. We have used image analysis with semiotic multimodality about the representation of masculinities in the Swedish magazine King. We have, in this study, been using six personal portrait in our analysis. We have been studying the first and the last picture in the person portraits and also the first pictures interacting with the headline.

 

To help answer our issue, we asked ourselves the following questions: How does the image and title interact on the front page of the personal portrait? What is the dominant representation of masculinity in King? What variations of masculinities can be found in King?

 

The result we have found is that King choose to portray the men shown in the personal portraits like men in a position of power. This certain power has been manifested in different ways, such as in violence, comics and other elements. The dominant masculinity we found in our personal portrait was the hegemonic were only one man was not included in the hegemonic masculinity.
