Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to investigate how men and women are produced in religious knowledge books for grades 4-6 in Christianity from a gender perspective. The four chosen textbooks are Upptäck Religion (2008), PULS Religion (2011), SO-Serien Religion 6 (2014) and Utkik Religion (2015). The theoretical part consists of Yvonne Hirdman and Jeanette Sky which are used to support my investigation. Previous research has shown that the male perspective dominates and that there is no focus on the role of women in religion. This thesis uses the genre staircase as an analytical tool and the texts in the teaching materials have been categorized into different levels based on a modified genre staircase.

The study shows that two textbooks in religious knowledge show Christianity as human religion. The other two textbooks do the same but the difference is that the authors draw attention to why it looked like this. One of these books highlights the occasion at the beginning of the book, telling about all religions generally and the other book at the end of the book but only about Christianity. These books tells that the reason why women are not visible in history is because they took care of the children, so the man seemed more important in the stories. In addition, the survey shows that there is a clear gap between textbooks and the school's assignment in the form of Lgr11.
