Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to investigate whether feature films offer alternative perspectives on

history compared to textbooks in the subject of history for upper secondary school. This aims to

create a deeper understanding of feature film as educational material. The essay will based on a

comparative method aim to identify similarities and differences in feature films and textbooks presentation

of history. Central historical themes reflected in the feature films Hidden Figures and Sameblod

provide the basis for analyzing of the same historical themes in two history textbooks. The

results are analyzed using history didactic theory in order to identify which historical perspective

that emerges.

The results of this study clearly show that feature films offer alternative perspectives on

history than is evident in history textbooks. The story presented in feature films portrays people´s

experience of oppression and discrimination in the past. The central historical themes reflected in

the feature films Hidden Figures and Sameblod were presented extremely little in the textbooks.

Instead, the textbook presents overall structural perspective in which political, economic and social

change processes and its consequences for society's population emerges. In conclusion, this shows

how feature films and textbooks offer various ways for people to encounter and understand historical

events and processes of change in the past.
