The depiction of multiculturalism in three selected children ́s books. : A study on the production of characters with a foreign backgrond and the use of multicultral literature at school. (English)
Abstract [sv]

I takt med att det svenska samhället blir mer mångkulturellt blir också skolorna det. Jag som lärare kommer med största sannolikhet undervisa en mångkulturell klass och vill därför bli medveten om vilka budskap den mångkulturella barn- och ungdomslitteraturen sänder. Syftet med undersökningen är att ta reda på hur människor med utländsk bakgrund framställs i tre utvalda barn- och ungdomsböcker. Jag kommer använda mig av en kvalitativ litteraturanalys som har sin utgångspunkt i begreppet mångkultur för att få en djupare inblick om hur mångkultur skildras i de utvalda böckerna. Resultatet av undersökningen som jag kom fram till är att mångkultur skildras i naturliga sammanhang och karaktärerna beskrivs på ett sätt som stämmer överens med deras stereotypiska utseende.

Abstract [en]

As the Swedish society becomes increasingly multicultural so does the educational system and schools. I believe with high probability that as a teacher I will teach a multicultural group in the classroom, therefore I want to become aware of what message the multicultural children ́s and youth literature portrays. The goal of the study is to enguire how people from countries other than Sweden are portrayed in three children ́s and youth books. I will be utilizing a qualitative litearture analysis that surrounds thus giving insight into how this is portrayed in the chosen literature pieces. The results of the study concludes that multiculturalism is depicted in everyday contexts and the characters are described in a way that agrees with their stereotypic looks.
